STATEMENT FROM LRANY EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
RE: A.G. SCHNEIDERMAN ANNOUNCEMENT OF LAWSUIT AGAINST RD LEGAL FOR SCAMMING 9/11 HEROES OUT OF MILLIONS
“We applaud Attorney General Schneiderman for cracking down on predatory lawsuit cash advance firms. These litigation lenders have long preyed on the injured and dodged consumer protection laws by mischaracterizing themselves as ‘investments’ rather than loans.
In 2016, the New York State Senate unanimously passed a bill to protect consumers and regulate these companies, we hope that today’s action will encourage the Assembly to do the same.”
-Tom Stebbins, Executive Director of the Lawsuit Reform Alliance of New York
