2L Chelsea Gaudin Co-authors Cover Story for Louisiana Bar Journal

2L Chelsea Gaudin co-authored the cover story in the latest edition of the Louisiana Bar Journal.  The article titled “Debt Buyers’ Abuse of Louisiana Courts Creates Problems for Consumers” details how some debt buyers have increasingly turned to law suits to pursue collections on open credit-card accounts.  It also calls on the state legislature to pass consumer protection laws to prevent debt-collection claims from being filed without better documentation, including the full chain of title on the debt.  Lawsuits often omit the original holder of the debt, a source of confusion for those who might be sued by the debt buyers.
