KAZEROUNI LAW GROUP, APC CERTIFIES CLASS AGAINST LOS ANGELES DEBT COLLECTOR

On behalf of Kazerouni Law Group, APC on Tuesday, December 30, 2014.

On December 15, 2014, the Honorable Jane L. Johnson of the Superior Court of Los Angeles certified a class action brought by the Kazerouni Law Group, APC against Water and Power Community Credit Union (“WPCCU”). [A true and correct copy of Judge Johnson’s Order may be read here]. In this Action, the Plaintiffs alleged that WPCCU violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1692, et seq. (“FDCPA”); and, the Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, Cal. Civ. Code § 1788, et seq. (“RFDCPA”) due to illegal statements in WPCCU’s collection letters. According to Judge Johnson, Plaintiffs’ class action was a “superior means of resolving the litigation for both the parties and court.” [See page 7 of Judge Johnson’s Order]. Thereafter, Judge Johnson continued to state that such a class action was appropriately certified since “numerous parties suffer[ed] injury of insufficient size to warrant individual action and [] denial of class relief would result in unjust advantage to [WPCCU].” [Id.]. The Kazerouni Law Group, APC believes this is a strong result that will provide relief for more than one hundred California consumers.
