While it has made some small gains from earlier this year, FDCPA litigation is on track to end 2012 with close to 11,500 lawsuits, down from over 12,000 for 2011. With one more period to go, we are over 11,000 as of Dec 15, 2012. Meanwhile, TCPA and FCRA litigation continue strong, despite a perceived drop in TCPA, actually caused by an anomalous lawsuit in the same period last year that had 168 plaintiffs on one large lawsuit.

FDCPA lawsuits are still on track to finish the year somewhere in the mid-to-high 10k range, down 6% from this time last year. FCRA cools a little in comparison to an abnormal spike last period. However, both FCRA and TCPA lawsuits have roared past their full year 2011 numbers of 1883 (FCRA) and 813 (TCPA) this month, with two full months of 2012 left to set new records.

No surprises this period. FDCPA litigation is still lackluster compared to last period and last year, while FCRA and TCPA are both up from last period and last year. The only interesting trend is that FDCPA does appear to be slowly narrowing the gap between this year and last year. Two months ago, the difference was 3.2%. Six weeks ago it spiked to 6.7%, four weeks ago it was 7%, two weeks ago it was 5.4%, and now it is 4.1%. This shows the spike may have been an anomaly, and if current trends continue it may eventually close the gap altogether.

Note: There was a significant spike in FDCPA lawsuits this period, even if you take into account the fact that one suit filed by Dale Pittman named 100 different plaintiffs (that suit also invokes TCPA). Pittman’s suit explains the apparent disparity with the number of suits filed being lower than the number of FDCPA claims.
