YLS Legal & Regulatory Compliance Committee Meeting
Date: 10/08/2014
Location: The Chicago Bar Association, 321 South Plymouth Court, Chicago, IL 60604
Presented by: YLS Legal and Regulatory Compliance

SPEAKER: Anthony Longo, Cassiday Schade, LLP
TOPIC: Fair Lending Practices, with a specific focus on the FDCPA

Mr. Longo will discuss FDCPA issues that have engendered disagreement among judges and courts throughout the federal system. Primary focus will be on the handful of issues where Illinois federal judges have announced there to be a "split of authority" on the application of the FDCPA. Each issue will be briefly discussed along with the authority supporting each side of the split. Particular attention will be paid to identifying those courts who favor the defense perspective on these issues. The goal is to provide defendants and their counsel some small level of predictability when litigating these thorny issues in Illinois by acquainting them with the issue, the competing authority, and the courts likely sympathetic to dispositive motion practice.
