More than 2,800 Nebraskans will share in a $148,625 settlement that a debt-collection firm agreed to pay because of questions about its practices
The lawsuit was filed in 2008 by Omaha lawyers Pamela Car and Bill Reinbrecht. They said Unifund filed lawsuits in some cases where the time limit on lawsuits had expired, and Unifund tried to collect attorney fees in some cases where that's not allowed.
People who have paid off the debt Unifund was trying to collect will receive a payment of roughly $50-$65, depending on how many people qualify.
People who still owe money will have their debt reduced by as much as $125.
A hearing on final approval of the settlement agreement is scheduled for Oct. 9. If the deal is approved then, Reinbrecht said the payments should begin being issued within a few weeks of the judge's ruling.
