Consumer Advocates and Department of Education Square Off Over Consumer Debt and Privacy

The National Consumer Law Center previously requested information from the Department of Education on "the agency's financial incentives and oversight over private collection agencies it contracts with to recover outstanding student debt."  The Department responded with a set of documents that NCLC says were overly redacted and under-inclusive.  In other words, NCLC argues they did not receive what they asked for and were entitled to under the Freedom of Information Act. NCLC has now brought suit against the Department in federal district court of Massachusetts.
