On June 8, the Ninth Circuit reversed the district court’s dismissal of a plaintiff’s complaint alleging that the debt collector defendants’ collection action against her violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), finding that the plaintiff’s complaint was filed within one year of the date on which she first learned of the collection action and was thus timely. Lyons v. Michael & Associates, No. 13-56657 (9th Cir. June 8, 2016). On December 7, 2011, the defendants filed a debt collection action against the plaintiff in Monterey, California, despite the fact that the plaintiff resided in San Diego at the time she incurred the debt. On January 3, 2013, the plaintiff initiated a separate action alleging that the defendants violated the FDCPA by bringing their collection action against her in the wrong judicial district. The district court dismissed the plaintiff’s complaint as time-barred, finding that it was filed more than one year after the defendants filed their collection action against plaintiff. The Ninth Circuit reversed, opining that the “discovery rule” applies in FDCPA actions and, therefore, the statute of limitations on the plaintiff’s FDCPA claim did not begin to run until the plaintiff “kn[ew] or ha[d] reason to know of the injury which is the basis of the action.” Because the plaintiff did not have knowledge of the defendants’ collection action until she was served with process—which was less than one year before she filed her action—her FDCPA complaint was timely.
