Midland Funding, LLC, one of the largest debt buyers in the country, recently dismissed a debt collection lawsuit in excess of $22,000 against one of the firm’s clients.
The client was thrilled with the result, to put it mildly.
The lawsuit alleged that Midland Funding had purchased a line of credit debt that was allegedly opened by the client and their ex-spouse. The client, however, had a paper trail showing that they were not responsible for the debt and had been disputing it’s validity for years.
Upon learning that the client was represented by The Ryder Law Firm, LLC, opposing counsel reached out in an attempt to amicably resolve the matter. Bringing the proverbial bazooka to a gunfight, we produced a 5 page affidavit with 70 pages of exhibits to prove the client was not liable.
Not long after that, Midland Funding agreed to dismiss the case with prejudice against the client. If you are involved in a debt collection lawsuit, please contact me to see how I can help.
