Patricia Arellano v. Clark County Collection Service, LLC; Borg Law Group, LLC Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Courthouse - San Francisco, California

Can a debt collector avoid liability under the Federal Fair

a procedure frustrates the Act’s purpose and is thus
preempted.

STATE OF KANSAS v. JUAN LUIS JASSO-MENDOZA

It is the combination of errors in this prosecution that leads us to conclude that Jasso-Mendoza did not receive a fair trial. The confusing jury instructions, the judge's failure to answer the jury's question, and the prosecutor's misstatement of the law, when combined, all create an error that we cannot label as harmless. We must reverse and remand for a new trial.
