Chase dismisses thousands of consumer collection lawsuits

July 5, 2011 by Todd Murray · Leave a Comment 

According to Consumerist and the Wall Street Journal, Chase has dismissed a bunch of debt collection lawsuits against consumers nationwide. Several of my consumer colleagues have speculated that this move is spurred by the recent robo-signing scandal. I’ve even heard (unsubstantiated) rumors that there has been some housecleaning in upper management of Chase’s credit card litigation department. In any event, this is good news for consumers.
