Repo Deficiency Lawsuit Dismissed by Jefferson Capital Systems

» Print This Page

Our clients had purchased a used vehicle from a local dealer, who arranged financing and assigned the contract to a car finance company called American Credit Acceptance.  However, the vehicle was repossessed soon after the sale.  American Credit Acceptance later sold the contract to a debt collector, Jefferson Capital Systems, LLC, who filed a lawsuit against our clients for a repo deficiency.  A repo deficiency lawsuit is a lawsuit filed after a car is repossessed, where the finance company or debt collector sues for the remaining balance due after the car is resold at auction.  Attorneys Sarah Daley and Brittany Gramsky from the debt collection law firm of Rausch, Sturm, Israel, Enerson & Hornik, LLC from Clearwater represented Jefferson Capital Systems in this repo deficiency lawsuit.

After we were retained, we filed an answer to the complaint and proceeded representing our clients with several motions and discovery.  We are very knowledgeable about the defenses that are unique to a repo deficiency lawsuit.  We are also knowledgeable about the defenses available in other types of debt collection lawsuits.  After we aggressively litigated this case, Jefferson Capital Systems dismissed the repo deficiency lawsuit against our clients.
