Our client was sued for an alleged credit card debt in Small Claims Court. The Plaintiff was Hudson & Keyse, LLC (a debt buyer and debt collector) who claimed to have been assigned the debt by Washington Mutual Bank. The debt collector was represented by Ryan Gesten, of Ryan D. Gesten, P.A. in Davie, Florida.
After conducting discovery, we were able to document that the debt collector had not complied with applicable Florida law. We filed a motion to dismiss for Hudson & Keyse’s failure to comply with several provisions of Florida law. Shortly afterward, the debt collector agreed to permanently dismiss its lawsuit against our client.
