Circuit court considering protections in ‘debt buyer’ cases

Special procedures to ensure integrity in collections actions brought by so-called “debt buyers” could be extended to Fairfax County Circuit Court.

A hearing is scheduled May 29 for comments on whether or not the circuit court should adopt guidelines concerning debt collection defaults similar to the existing “best practices” in Fairfax General District Court which have been in effect for five years, and were most recently revised in February.

After the hearing, a subcommittee of the Fairfax Bar Association circuit court committee will deliver a report for consideration by the full committee.

For anyone who cannot attend the hearing, written comments may be submitted before the end of the day on Friday, June 14 to:

Peyton Whiteley, Co-Chair of the Special Subcommittee on Best Practices
c/o Legal Services of Northern Virginia
4080 Chain Bridge Road
Fairfax, Virginia 22030
