Collection law news

Here is a story in the NYT, (not my favorite paper for accurate news accounts) about the increase in collection lawsuits.  While I think the story is one-sided, I do think that firms, like the one cited in the article bring this on themselves by trying to handle too many cases in a rote fashion.

This article prompted one of my favorite authors, Megan Mcardle, to do blog posts here and here on the subject of debt collectors.  I posted some clarifications in the comments, some of which prompted Ms Mcardle to post updates to her blog posts.  Generally I agree with much of what she said in her posts, especially regarding debt that is bought and sold numerous times.
