Jerman v. Carlisle, McNellie, Rini, Kramer & Ulrich LPA, 08-1200

In an action contending that, by sending a notice requiring her to dispute the debt in writing, defendant law firm violated section 1692g(a) of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), which governed the contents of notices to debtors, the Sixth Circuit's affirmance of summary judgment for defendant is reversed where the bona fide error defense in section 1692k(c) did not apply to a violation resulting from a debt collector's mistaken interpretation of the legal requirements of the FDCPA.
