Please join Troutman Pepper Partner Chris Willis and his colleagues Jonathan Floyd and Meagan Mihalko as they discuss recent trends in Article III standing in the federal courts. The trio examine why this is a big deal in consumer litigation, whether courts consistently apply recent Supreme Court decisions with one another, and what considerations and implications defendants should consider when deciding whether or not to remove a case from state to federal court.
Consumer Financial Services Associate Jonathan Floyd focuses his practice on financial services litigation, representing clients in class actions and business disputes in both federal and state courts. Jonathan helps businesses navigate and litigate the myriad consumer and financial services laws, particularly with the many “alphabet soup” federal consumer protection statutes, such as the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), and Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). Jonathan’s experience also covers a variety of state consumer protection laws, and he regularly litigates actions arising under the West Virginia Consumer Credit Protection Act (WVCCPA) and New York General Business Law Section 349.
Consumer Financial Services Associate Meagan Mihalko’s national practice includes defending both class-action and individual matters involving federal consumer protection statutes like the FCRA, the FDCPA, and the TCPA. Meagan represents financial services clients, including banks, consumer reporting agencies, background screening companies, debt buyers, and debt collectors, in individual and class-action litigation throughout the U.S. Meagan has successfully obtained summary judgment for clients in both class actions and individual cases, and she has litigated cases in federal courts across the U.S.
