Is this legal?

Recommended Posts

I have been sued by an OC.

Prior to filing suit, the lawyer sent me a dunning letter. I DV'd and never got validation.

They filed suit so I have claims against the lawyer for continuing collection activity on an unvalidated debt.

Is it legal for me to send the lawyer an ITS telling him that if the OC doesn't dismiss their claims, I will sue the lawyer?

But "continuing collection" in a case like this is not the most rock solid case to sue on over the FDCPA.

This kind of FDCPA violation tends to make the court yawn if its the only FDCPA violation.

Send it. See what happens. Attorney may not want the lawsuit hassle.

If he comes back and offers "let's call it even", that would be a good offer.

But make sure you answer the suit.
