Midland and Barclays Statute of Limitations Developments

On September 21, 2018, a class action lawsuit was filed against Midland Credit Management and the Schreiber/Cohen law firm of Salem, New Hampshire, on behalf of two Massachusetts residents who were sued on consumer debts by Midland Funding after the Delaware three-year limitations period had expired. 

On October 5, 2018, a judge of the Orange District Court dismissed a collection lawsuit brought by Midland Funding on the ground that it was filed beyond the three-year Delaware statute of limitations.

The class action lawsuit brought against Barclays Bank Delaware and the Stillman Law Office for filing collection lawsuits beyond the three-year Delaware statute of limitations remains pending.

Attorney Kenneth D. Quat represents the consumers in these lawsuits.  The Midland class action is being co-counseled with Greater Boston Legal Services and the National Consumer Law Center.
