Court dockets across the country are saturated with lawsuits from banks and debt buyers seeking to recoup defaulted credit card and student loan debts. Many cases are brought by high-volume collection firms that file lawsuits by the hundreds. This course provides an overview of best practices for responding, along with a discussion of affirmative defenses, counterclaims, and discovery devices, with some specific examples from New York for illustration. We also discuss the distinctions between original creditors and debt buyers, and how that distinction can affect the debtors' available defenses.
