E-Discovery is a $3.6 billion market and is expected to reach $9.9 billion by 2017, according to industry trends
In the computer age, 99% of all documents are created and stored electronically. Today, all litigants, pro se or otherwise, have a duty to request and disclose responsive electronic evidence in their cases. If you have a consumer debt case, debt collectors will seek to turn to the courts to squeeze money out of the already struggling poor and middle class.
Lawsuits to collect on bad debts have to be filed in the state where a debtor lives. And, location has become the new tool for debt collectors as some jurisdictions are more lenient than others. Large debt buyers use the relaxed rules of small claims and municipal courts to file suits that obtain little documentation of the debts they seek to collect. These courts allow for quick judgments when legally unsophisticated defendants fail to contest the suits. Once the debt collectors obtains a judgment, they use the full weight of the legal system to enforce it primarily by seizing assets, garnishing wages, and freezing bank accounts.
Thus, the need for ediscovery. Tune in to our E-Discovery Nuts and Bolts for Consumer Debt Mediation Training Webinar on Tuesday, January 28, 2014 @ 12 Noon to learn how to uncover ESI and effectively negotiate a resolution of your consumer debt via mediation or arbitration.

The CFPB, which was established under the auspices of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010, codified at Pub. L. 111-203, 124 Stat. 1376-2223, issued new mortgage servicing rules that went into effect as of January 10, 2014.
Under the new rules, a mortgage servicer cannot initiate a foreclosure until 120 days after you fall behind in payments. Also, the servicer cannot start the foreclosure process if a loss mitigation application is pending.
What this means folks is that if you submit a complete loss mitigation application to your mortgage servicer after the foreclosure has started, but more than 37 days before a foreclosure sale, the servicer must stop the foreclosure proces until:
1. The servicer informs you that you are not eligible for any loss mitigation options (and any appeal you make has been exhausted);
2. You reject the workout option that the servicer offers to you, or
3. You accept a workout, but fail to comply with the terms of the deal (such as not making payments during a trial modification)
