Beler v. Blatt, Hasenmiller, Liebsker & Moore, LLC, No. 06-2707 (6/7/07). Appeal, C.D. Ill. Aff’d.
Dist. Ct. did not err in granting defendant-law firm/debt collector’s motion for summary judgment in action alleging that certain allegations made by defendant in state lawsuit seeking collection of plaintiff’s debt were insufficiently clear so as to constitute violation of §1692e of FDCPA. FDCPA does not apply to contents of state complaint seeking collection of debt. Moreover, defendant did not violate sec. §1692f of FDCPA by serving citation that caused plaintiff’s bank to freeze her checking account for three weeks.
