Defend Property Management Co. in FDCPA Claims, Major Victory Establishes Client Not a Debt Collector

On summary judgment in a case brought in federal court in Minnesota, John Rossman secured a dismissal of FDCPA claims against his client, a property management company.  The court agreed with John’s argument that a property management company that has the right and responsibility to collect dues and assessments before they become overdue is not a “debt collector” for purposes of the FDCPA.
