Justice has finally been found for one Washington County, PA client of ours. LVNV sued our client, Mr. G, on an old WalMart account. LVNV was asking for approximately $4500 in damages in the lawsuit. At the arbitration hearing, LVNV presented approximately 1 years worth of old statements. They did not produce a signed agreement, or any agreement for that matter, and they didnt provide any real evidence that they had purchased Mr. G’s alleged account. Despite this lack of evidence, the Arbitrators ruled that Mr. G owed $2250 to LVNV. Our educated guess is that the Arbitrators simply were not familiar with basic contract law… To that end, we filed an Appeal for Mr. G because we knew that LVNV didnt have any other evidence. At the bench trial, LVNV again came in with the same lack of evidence, but this time, they included a few “Affidavits”, wink, wink, that alleged to support the sale of the accounts. These “Affidavits” didnt support anything, they were vague and incomplete, and they referenced other documents that were not presented at trial. I felt bad for the attorney who was representing LVNV, he is a very nice man who is forced to handle cases where he only has about 30% of the evidence that he needs to prevail. Anyways, long story made short, we won on appeal, complete judgment for Defendant.
