Cert Petitions Filed in Debt Relief Agency Case of Milavetz
Cert Petitions in the 8th Circuit case of Milavetz, Gallop & Millavetz v. USA were filed by both the Plaintiff law firm and the USA. Plaintiff's brief can be accessed here. The government's brief can be accessed here. The response briefs can be found on the Scotusblog.com. Tom Goldstein has picked this as a case which the Supremes might grant cert. It would sure be fun if they did.
The 8th Circuit ruled that attorneys are debt relief agencies, that the DRA rules which seem to restrict speech are unconstitutional, and that the requirements re statements DRAs have to make in advertising are constitutional.
The Supreme Court is considering this coming week whether to grant cert on this case.
