Ohio's Special Counsel Did Not Violate FDCPA By Using Ohio AG Letterhead

The Supreme Court has held unanimously that private attorneys hired by the Ohio Attorney General to collect debts owed to agencies of the State of Ohio did not violate the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) by sending out demand letters on the Attorney General's letterhead. Sheriff v. Gillie, No. 15-938, 2016 WL 2842453 (U.S. May 16, 2016). The opinion reverses a decision by the Sixth Circuit holding that the letters did violate the FDCPA.
