Jensen v. Pressler and Pressler LLP and Midland Funding LLC (U.S. District Court, District of New Jersey, Case No. 2:13-cv-01712-SDW-MCA)
In a class action complaint, Lemberg & Associates is representing Paula Jensen, who is suing Pressler and Pressler and Midland Funding for violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA).
The suit alleges Pressler & Pressler sends information subpoenas to consumers that are supposedly signed by Clerk Terrence D. Lee. The information subpoena threatened arrest and incarceration if a consumer fails to answer.
The lawsuit alleges that the “Clerk” has been retired for years, and that his position was an elected one and completely unrelated to the position of the Superior Court Clerk, whose signature should have appeared on the information subpoena. Mr. Lee didn’t have the authorization to issue a subpoena, and his name was used without his knowledge or consent.
The proposed class for this case is all New Jersey consumers who received an information subpoena bearing the name Terrance D. Lee.
The lawsuit revolves around a number of FDCPA-related issues. For example, the FDCPA prohibits debt collectors from using false, deceptive, or misleading representations when collecting consumer debts. Similarly, the FDCPA prohibits the use of any written communication that simulates or is falsely represented as a document issued or approved by a court, official, or federal or state agency.
