Representative Matters :

  • Represented mortgage servicer on appeal before the Appellate Division Second Department of New York where the homeowner attempted to vacate a 2.5 million dollar mortgage by arguing a novel theory that multiple bankruptcies did not stay the statute of limitations because prior actions to foreclose were brought, and dismissed, before the homeowner’s bankruptcy petitions. This theory was rejected by the Second Department allowing the mortgage servicer to avoid a possible multi-million dollar loss.
  • Represented debt collector in putative class action where the consumer claimed that cellular telephone debts were governed by a federal two-year statute of limitations and thus the debt collector’s attempts to collect violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). Going through the history of the federal statute at issue (the federal telecommunications act) and the law of pre-emption, Sheng obtained a clear decision from the Eastern District of New York holding that the federal statute did not apply and that the debt collector could not have violated the FDCPA. (Torres v. Midland Credit Mgmt., 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 84969, at * 1 (E.D.N.Y. May 21, 2018))
  • Represented debt collector in putative class action where the consumer attempted to argue a novel theory that a debt collector’s failure to follow New Jersey’s more stringent redaction rules for lawsuits filed in the state constituted a violation of the FDCPA. Sheng obtained a decision from the District of New Jersey soundly rejecting this theory by arguing that the consumer could not borrow the stricter standard set forth by New Jersey to manufacture a violation of the federal statute and, moreover, that any such standard would be illogical and contradictory to the standards set forth by the federal courts. (Diaz v. Midland Funding, LLC, Civ. No. 17-1925 (KM/JBC), 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 156440, at *1 (D.N.J. Sept. 22, 2017))
