Palisades Debt Collection Settlement Notes

  • Mayfield, et al. v. Asta Funding Inc., et al.
  • Case No. 1:14-cv-02591
  • Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York

A group of plaintiffs banded together to bring this class action lawsuit against Palisades Collection, Asta Funding, and Pressler & Pressler LLP, alleging illegal debt collection practices and violation of the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, and more.

Specifically the plaintiffs assert that each of the defendants improperly sued Class Members in New York City Civil Court to collect on AT&T Wireless debts, from around 2005 to 2007. These debt collection lawsuits were brought without evidence to prove Class Members even owed the debt, were not reviewed properly.

The complaint also states that Pressler & Pressler told the courts they notified the people they sued about the debt collection lawsuits, but never actually did so and filed court papers with false statements in order to obtain judgments in their favor. Additionally, the defendants reportedly used these wrongfully obtained judgments to garnish wages, freeze bank accounts, and persuade Class Members to pay them money.

All of the defendants deny the allegations and maintain their debt collection practices are in line with the law. Complete details are provided in the Settlement Agreement. The Settlement Agreement and other related documents are available on the Palisades Debt Collection Settlement website.

Class members who wish to exclude themselves or object to the terms of the Palisades Debt Collection Settlement must do so by April 3, 2018.

Alice+Olivia Unpaid Intern Settlement Notes

  • In re Alice+Olivia LLC Intern Settlement
  • Case No. 150527/2015
  • Pending in the Supreme Court of the State of New York, New York County

Plaintiffs Meaghan Lass and Shannon Friedmann brought this class action lawsuit against Alice+Olivia claiming the contemporary clothing company violated New York labor laws by failing to pay interns minimum wages. Alice+Olivia launched in 2002 at Barneys and is now sold in over fifty countries.
