Class Action Against Cavalry
On August 15, 2019, Law360 reported that Kevin Abramowicz (formerly of BCJ Law; currently with East End Trial Group) filed a putative class action against Cavalry SPV I LLC and Cavalry Portfolio Services LLC.
The case alleged that Cavalry regularly sued Pennsylvania consumers without providing a “right to cure notice”. The putative class representatives alleged specific notice was required before Cavalry had the right to file suit against Pennsylvania consumers.
The named plaintiffs contended Cavalry violated a federal law called the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (“FDCPA”) and Pennsylvania state laws, including the Fair Credit Extension Uniformity Act (“FCEUA”) and the Unfair Trade Practices and Consumer Protection Law (“UTPCPL”). The putative class representatives sought to certify a class of other Pennsylvania consumers who were sued by Cavalry without proper notice.
