Transfer of Marion County Township Small Claims Cases
We have learned that many cases filed in the Marion County Township Small Claims courts are being transferred as a result of our Suesz decision. (The United States Supreme Court has now declined to review that decision.) The collection cases were filed in the wrong court, and the debt collectors are hoping to avoid liability for further proceedings by transferring the cases. If you have received such a motion or order, contact us, as you may be able to recover damages for violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, regardless of whether you owe the debt or whether the debt collection plaintiff can prove it is the owner of the debt.
