A small bit of good news

When an FDCPA claim is based on the filing of a lawsuit, there is the question of whether the Statute of Limitations runs from the filing of the suit or from the service of summons.  The different circuits have split on the subject.  The Sixth has not addressed the question.

Recently a District Court in Tennessee  (in the Sixth Circuit) has addressed the issue and found that the statute runs from the date of filing.  A small victory for the creditor’s rights community.
