NEW ORLEANS -- A federal court judge has awarded a Louisiana woman a $1,500 default judgment in her Fair Debt Collection Practices suit against a New York collections agency.
Claiming violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, Laura Michaud filed suit against Unified Asset Solutions in 2011 in federal court in New Orleans.
Michaud’s suit also accused Unified of intentional infliction of emotional distress and invasion of privacy.
In addition to an award for damages, Michaud also sought statutory damages, attorney fees, court costs and expenses.
She was represented in the action by New Orleans attorney Marc R. Michaud.
