Supreme Court Corner - Hot Off the Wire

The United States Supreme Court granted certiorari on a Sixth Circuit decision, Sheriff v. Gillie, a FDCPA case which is of some interest to bankruptcy folks.

“Issue: (1) Whether special counsel – lawyers appointed by the Attorney General to undertake his duty to collect debts owed to the state – are state “officers” within the meaning of 15 U.S.C. § 1692a(6)(C); and (2) whether it is materially misleading under 15 U.S.C. § 1692e for special counsel to use Attorney General letterhead to convey that they are collecting debts owed to the State on behalf of the Attorney General.”
