Consumer Attorney Services, P.A. v. StateAnnotate this Case
The State brought this civil action against Consumer Attorney Services, P.A., The McCann Law Group, LLP, and Brenda McCann (collectively, Defendants), alleging that Defendants’ conduct violated four Indiana consumer protection statutes: the Credit Services Organizations Act (CSOA), the Mortgage Rescue Protection Fraud Act (MRPFA), the Home Loan Practices Act (HLPA), and the Deceptive Consumer Sales Act (DCSA). Defendants filed a motion for summary judgment, asserting that they were statutorily exempted from liability. The trial court denied the motion. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that neither the CSOA, the MRPFA, the HLPA, nor the DCSA provides an exemption for law firms.
