LOS ANGELES – A Colorado consumer alleges two debt collectors have unlawfully and abusively tried to collect a debt.
Denise Didario, formerly known as Denise M. Kord, filed a complaint on Sept. 23 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, Western Division against
Bleier & Cox, APC and National Collegiate Student Loan Trust 2004-1 alleging violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in 2015 she purportedly fell behind on payments to
National Collegiate Student Loan Trust 2004-1
and the debt was transferred to Belier & Cox, who filed a collections lawsuit in Orange County Superior Court. The plaintiff holds Bleier & Cox APC and National Collegiate Student Loan Trust 2004-1 responsible because
Bleier & Cox filed the suit in a jurisdiction that is inconvenient for her and that she has incurred damages to defend herself in another state.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks actual damages, statutory damages of $1,000, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Sara Khosroabadi, Robert L. Hyde and Joshua B. Swigart of Hyde & Swigart in San Diego.
