Financial Services Update

  • TILA / Credit / Financing: Plaintiff had no standing to bring TILA claim because he had not suffered a concrete and particularized injury — he had not shown that he was at any particularized risk of making an uninformed credit decisionWalters v. Fast AC, LLC, No. 2:19-cv-00070 (M.D. Fla. May 13, 2021)

  • TCPA / Fax Advertisements: Faxes plaintiff received were not “unsolicited advertisements” within the meaning of the TCPA because plaintiff’s listing of its fax number and agreeing to receive information from a franchisor’s affiliates and approved vendors constituted prior express invitation or permission to receive fax advertisements for products of approved suppliers such as defendant Gorss Motels, Inc. v.
