SHREVEPORT – A Caddo Parish couple are suing debt relief agencies alleging they failed to comply with bankruptcy code.
Tony Christopher Rice and Sherry Dawn Rice filed a complaint on Feb. 9 in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Louisiana, Shreveport Division against Glay H. Collier II, McBride & Collier and Continental Casualty Co., alleging that they violated the Bankruptcy Code.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they suffered financial losses for costs and attorney fees in their Chapter 13 bankruptcy case. The plaintiffs hold the defendants responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to provide them a copy of a fully executed and completed contract for representing them, failed to provide the mandatory disclosures and filed an immaterial amended plan representing the debtors’ signatures electronically.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek compensation for all fees and charges received by the defendants for providing them with bankruptcy assistance, actual damages, reasonable attorney’s fee and costs for this action. They are represented by Ralph Scott Bowie of Daye, Bowie & Beresko, APLC in Shreveport.
