A class action lawsuit filed in May of 2013 under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act in United States District Court, Southern District of Florida, against Udren Law Offices, P.C., Courtney Jared Bannan and Mark J. Udren. Case 2:13-cv-14219-DLG. The lawsuit alleges that in connection with the filing of mortgage foreclosure actions, the validation notice prepared by defendants stated that the consumer must object to the alleged debt “in writing” which is not a requirement under the FDCPA. This practice has been ruled as a false, misleading and deceptive practice under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. See Jerman v. Carlisle, McNellie, Rini, Kramer & Ulrich LPA, 130 S. Ct. 1605, 1634–35 (2010).
