$30,000 Debt Buyer Lawsuit Discontinued with Prejudice
Jefferson Capital Systems LLC v. M.L. - Richmond County Supreme Court
Our client was being sued by a third party debt buyer for unpaid student loans. Our office file an answer on behalf of the client and waited. A year later, the creditor's attorney requested a preliminary conference and started the move the matter forward. Our client did not wish to negotiate any settlement with the debt buyer. We aggressively made use of discovery demands and showed the creditor that we intended to move forward towards a trial. After three court appearances the creditor gave in and executed a stipulation to discontinue the lawsuit with prejudice (meaning it can never be brought again).
