Blitt Wins 7th Circuit Appeal

On August 17, 2016, the 7th Circuit upheld two district court rulings which had that an Illinois wage garnishment is not an action against a consumer subject to the venue requirements of the FDCPA.    One of our partners, Michael Starzec, personally argued this appeal before the court.    The ruling is a good one for creditors statewide as it makes clear post-judgment actions against 3rd parties do not require the case to be transferred where the consumer lives.
