Barber et al v. Drive Financial Services
Drive Financial Services, L.P. has settled a class-action suit with over 1, 150 Texas residents, according to Houston consumer protection attorney Richard Tomlinson.
The Texas residents on behalf of Velincia Barber had accused Drive of violating numerous federal and state consumer protection laws while attempting to collect debts.
Specifically, the suit charged that Drive sent threatening letters to Texas residents who fell behind in their payments. Said letters threatened wage garnishment and purported to be from an attorney or law firm, actions which violate the Federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Texas Debt Collection Act.
The settlement requires Drive to pay the class $250, 000 plus Tomlinson's legal fees and court costs. U.S. District Judge Sim Lake of the Southern District of Texas ruled that the settlement should be approved as fair, reasonable, adequate and in the best interests of the members of the class.
Class members were notified of the settlement and entitled to submit objections to the court prior to the hearing before Judge Lake. Among the more than 1, 150 notices, however, no objections were filed.
The fact, said Tomlinson, that Drive has to write a quarter million dollars in checks to the Texas residents they harassed should send a message to other debt collectors who use abusive, unethical and illegal techniques to apply pressure.
