What Concerns Do Experts Have for Future Debt Collection Practices after the Supreme Court's Decision in Henson v. Santander? - Episode 204
ABI editor-at-large Bill Rochelle talks with consumer law scholar Prof. Jeff Sovern of St. John's University School of Law and consumer bankruptcy attorney John R. Bollinger of the Boleman Law Firm about the Supreme Court's June 12 opinion in Henson v. Santander Consumer (No. 16-349). After the court ruled that a debt collector who purchases a debt for its own account is not a debt collector covered by the FDCPA, Sovern and Bollinger examine the potential effects that the decision will have on both debt collectors and consumers.
