The United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit affirmed the dismissal of a class action lawsuit against CG&P’s client, a New York City law firm. The plaintiff alleged that CG&P’s client, in the course of representing property owners, violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act in communicating with tenants regarding rent arrears. This is the first time that the Second Circuit applied its holding in Emanuel v. American Credit Exchange, 870 F.2d 805 (2d Cir. 1989) to a claim under 15 U.S.C. § 1692g.
CG&P’s Legal Malpractice Defense Group capped off a successful four-week run with another victory: a pre-answer dismissal of all malpractice claims asserted against a Manhattan medical malpractice firm. The victory came on the heels of earlier successes on behalf of a preeminent Manhattan fashion industry attorney, a Nassau County matrimonial attorney, and an Easthampton litigation firm.
