Third Circuit Reverses Summary Judgment Grant to University in Unpaid Tuition Case


On November 29, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a district court’s grant of summary judgment to Drexel University in a Fair Debt Collection Practices Act case brought by a former student.

In Tiene v. Law Office of J. Scott Watson PC, No. 18-1221 (3d Cir. Nov. 29, 2018), Philip Tiene, a former Drexel University student, argued that the district court erred in granting summary judgment to the University on his FDCPA claims.
