CUNA, WCUL to file brief in Wis. Supreme Court case by Dec. 21

November 29, 2018

CUNA and the Wisconsin Credit Union League filed a motion with the Wisconsin Supreme Court Wednesday requesting leave to file an amicus brief in a Security Finance v. Kirsch. CUNA and the league’s motion informs the court that the organizations will file an amicus brief in the case by Dec. 21.

The case involves frivolous lawsuits filed under the Wisconsin Consumer Act related to creditors’ good-faith efforts to collect on legitimate debts. CUNA and the Wisconsin Credit Union League are arguing such suits would have a chilling effect on lending and should not be permitted.
