The Gillie and Spokeo U.S. Supreme Court Cases and Their Meaning for You as a Creditors Rights Attorney

Event Information


Monday, May 23


Via webinar

Sponsored By:

The National Creditors Bar Association (NARCA)


June D. Coleman


A unanimous U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Monday May 16, 2016  that private attorneys hired by states to collect back taxes and other debts can act on behalf of state officials, reversing a Sixth Circuit decision that lawyers tapped to collect money owed to Ohio misrepresented themselves by using the state attorney general’s letterhead.

In another SCOTUS decision, The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Monday that a consumer could not sue Spokeo Inc. for mere technical violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act, but left the door open for plaintiffs in other cases to use statutory violations to establish standing, ruling that the Ninth Circuit used an incomplete analysis when it ruled consumers can sue companies without alleging actual injury. 

Shareholder June Coleman joins a panel to share her perspective on the two major cases and their impact on the practice of creditors rights attorneys – especially those who do work with their state governments.

CLE will not be offered for this presentation.
