No. RG-10-529702 (Cal. Super. Ct.).

This class action complaint alleged claims under the State Rosenthal Act Fair Debt Collection suit against Midland and a law firm in California.

Class certification was granted in October, 2019, and the Court approved a final settlement on June 14, 2023, providing a settlement fund of $3.5 Million.
