Looking Forward at Consumer Finance Litigation in 2021: The Implementation of Federal Statutes, Regulations, and the Impact of Cases Brought Within the COVID Pandemic

December 15, 2020

This program will outline and analyze the likely impact of new consumer finance regulations, statutes, and cases brought during, or in direct response to the COVID Pandemic and the resulting economic downturn. This will include the new federal debt collection regulations set forth by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, new statutory provisions regarding credit reporting, and other items relating to the Telephone Protection Consumer Act. In addition, there will be a discussion of pending cases in the US Supreme Court and other courts, along with future cases that will likely be brought (including putative class actions). Finally, the presenters will discuss what to expect and possible ways to prepare for the coming surge of litigation.
