Anastasia Caton quoted in Law360 article on recent Supreme Court case on nonjudicial foreclosures

On March 21, Law360 published an article addressing the recent U.S. Supreme Court unanimous decision that the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act does not apply to nonjudicial foreclosures. Partner Anastasia Caton commented for the story, noting that left unresolved by the justices is what happens when a firm pursuing nonjudicial foreclosure also tries to get a deficiency judgment.

"Where a state allows nonjudicial foreclosure and also allows a creditor to pursue a deficiency after a nonjudicial foreclosure, that could be a situation where having your foreclosure attorney do both could trip up the FDCPA," said Caton.

Anastasia advises clients on various aspects of compliance with state and federal servicing and debt collection laws. In addition, she assists clients in handling federal government agency and state attorneys general investigations.
