Collection Industry Organizations Support Protecting Stimulus Payments from Garnishment
Three collection industry organizations, the Commercial Law League of America, International Association of Commercial Collectors, and the Commercial Collection Agencies of America, all support any action to protect the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act (“CARES Act”) stimulus payments to individuals from garnishment.  Leadership of all three organizations recognize the extent of the economic crisis and the impact the pandemic has had on our whole economy, but most particularly on small businesses and individual consumers.  While many of our members and clients are small business owners who have been significantly impacted by the economic crisis, we agree that the CARES Act stimulus payments should be used by individuals for basic living expenses. We join the recommendation that any stimulus payment paid to an individual under the CARES Act be deemed as exempt from execution, and recommend that the Treasury Department code the individual’s stimulus payment as a federal benefit to ensure it is protected.

Senate Passes Coronavirus Stimulus Bill: New Bankruptcy Amendments
Rolling Meadows, IL – March 27, 2020 – Early on the morning of March 27th, the Senate passed the CARES Act. The bill goes to the House of Representatives where it is expected to pass by unanimous consent. The President is expected to sign the bill.

The bill has some key provisions dealing with bankruptcy, which include the following:

First, the newly enacted Small Business Reorganization Act of 2019 (Chapter 13 for small business) will see an increase in the eligibility threshold from $2,725,625 to $7,500,000.

Second, the definition of ‘income” in the Bankruptcy Code for Chapter 7 and 13 will exclude coronavirus-related payments from the federal government from being treated as “income” for purposes of filing bankruptcy.  This provision affects the means test calculation.

Third, “disposable Income” for purposes of confirming a Chapter 13 plan shall not include coronavirus related payments.

Fourth, Chapter 13 debtors may seek plan payment modifications, if they are experiencing a material financial hardship due to the coronavirus pandemic, including extending their payments for up to seven years after their initial plan payment was due.

These provisions will sunset in one year.

Finally, there would be a six month repayment holiday with respect to student loans.

There are also discussions on Capitol Hill that the next phase of COVID19 relief may including expanding the dollar limits for Chapter 13 eligibility. The League is also watching to see if dischargeability of Student loans, an increase in Trustee Commissions and the elimination of credit counseling may work its way into future legislation.

CLLA Legal Update: Coronavirus Response Act
Rolling Meadows, IL – March 27, 2020 – Effect of Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA)H.R. 6201. The United States Congress and the President passed the second coronavirus response act in mid-March of 2020. It passed as House Resolution 6201. (Herein “The Act”) The Act became law on March 18, 2020 amid the Coronavirus outbreak in the U.S. This Act poses dramatic changes to small businesses and sole proprietorships throughout the Country including law firms and collection agencies. It goes into effect on April 3, 2020. Almost all Small Businesses in the U.S. will feel the effects of this law over the next few months.

This Article will provide a brief overview of the Act. It is not intended to be relied upon for a complete analysis of specific applications of the Act in all circumstances. Part of this Act included the Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act. This EFMLEA Act extends family and medical leave during the a Public Health Emergency to all employers who employ under 500 employees. The current threshold for family and medical leave is any business over 50 employees. As a result, all small businesses and sole proprietorships must now give Family and Medical Leave of up to 12 weeks for Coronavirus related causes. These causes include the following:

  1. Subject to a Federal, State, or local quarantine or isolation order related to COVID-19;
  2. Advised by a health care provider to self-quarantine related to COVID-19;
  3. Is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms and is seeking a medical diagnosis;
  4. Is caring for an individual subject to a quarantine order or in self-quarantine;
  5. Is caring for a child whose school or place of care is closed for reasons related to COVID-19;
  6. Or is experiencing any other substantially-similar condition specified by the Secretary of HHS.

Duration of Leave:
For reasons (1)-(4) and (6) a Full-time employee is eligible for up to 80 hours of leave, and a part-time employee is eligible the number of hours of leave that the employee works on average over a two-week period.

For reason (5): A Full-time employee is eligible for up to 12 weeks of leave at 40 hours a week, and a part-time employee is eligible for leave for the number of hours that the employee is normally scheduled to work over that period.

CALCULATION OF PAY
For Leave reasons (1),(2), or (3): employees taking leave shall be paid at either their regular rate or the applicable minimum wage, whichever is higher, up to $511 per day and $5,110 in the aggregate (over a 2-week period).

For leave reason (4) or (6); employees taking leave shall be paid at 2/3 their regular rate or 2/3 the applicable minimum wage, whichever is higher, up to $200 per day and $2,000 in the aggregate (over a 2-week period).

For leave reason (5); employees taking leave shall be paid at 2/3 their regular pay or 2/3 the applicable minimum wage, whichever is higher, up to $200 per day and $12,000 in the aggregate (over a 12-week period- two weeks of paid sick leave followed by up to 10 weeks of paid expanded family and medical leave). The first 10 days of leave are unpaid. After 10 days the Employer “shall provide paid leave for each day of leave taken after the 10 day unpaid period. The employee may then take 12 weeks of paid leave at 2/3 of the regular rate of pay not to exceed 200 per day or 10k in the aggregate.

GETTING IT BACK
The Employer receives a Tax credit against payroll taxes for each calendar quarter up to an amount equal to 100 percent of the qualified sick leave wages paid by such employer with respect to such calendar quarter. Should the payroll tax amount paid the employer on a quarterly basis not be sufficient to cover the amount paid under the act, the Employer treats the amounts paid as not covered by payroll taxes as a credit against estimated income taxes on taxes. Of course, this does not deal with the fact that there may be extensive losses due to the Virus outbreak.  This entire provision sunsets on December 31, 2020.

Commercial Law League of America Advocates For Passage of The Bankruptcy Venue Reform Act of 2019 (H.R. 4421)
Rolling Meadows, IL – February 21, 2020 –On February 20, 2020, the National Association of Attorneys’ General (NAAG) announced its official support for passage of The Bankruptcy Venue Reform Act of 2019, pending in Congress as H.R. 4421. https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/4421

Forty-Two (42) attorneys’ general signed a letter asking Congress to pass H.R. 4421 because:

“As state attorneys general, we are charged with guarding our states’ financial interests, enforcing consumer protection laws, protecting our citizens from environmental contamination, and combating wrongdoing in whatever form it takes. These duties are difficult enough to carry out when corporations file bankruptcy and claim to be financially unable to comply with their legal obligations. The difficulties are multiplied when bankruptcy law allows those debtors to seek relief in distant jurisdictions where the debtors have found rulings that are friendlier to their interests than to those of persons and agencies located far away who will have difficulty affording to appear and be heard.”

The NAAG’s press release and the letter from the 42 state attorneys’ general are available here: https://www.naag.org/naag/media/naag-news/attorneys-general-support-bankruptcy-venue-reform-act-of-2019.php; https://www.naag.org/assets/redesign/files/sign-on-letter/NAAG%20Support%20Letter%20-%20HR%204421.pdf.

The Commercial Law League of America has consistently advocated for bankruptcy venue reform and is the nation’s leading organization on this issue. On February 24, 2020, the CLLA and its members will be in DC on the Hill advocating for Congress to pass H.R. 4421.  They will also be seeking corrective changes to recently enacted Small Business Bill (28 USC Section 1409(b)) relating to the jurisdictional provision for preferences, and opening discussions on discharging student loans utilizing the CLLA’s proposal to amend the statute to define hardship using the criteria from other statutes.

Reps. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) and Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI) Introduce H.R. 4421, the Bankruptcy Venue Reform Act of 2019
Rolling Meadows, IL, September 24, 2019 – Last week, two of the Commercial Law League of America’s (“CLLA”) friends in Congress, Reps. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) and Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI), introduced H.R. 4421, bipartisan, common-sense legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives to reform and strengthen the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. Reps. Charlie Christ (D-FL), and Greg Steube (R-FL) have also signed on as original cosponsors.  Simply put, our country’s Bankruptcy Code allows companies to flee their communities, employees, and local creditors to reorganize their finances in another state that might be more sympathetic to their interests.  READ MORE

Small Business Reorganization Act of 2019 Signed Into Law
Rolling Meadows, IL, August 2, 2019 – The Commercial Law League of America (“CLLA”) is pleased to announce that on August 23, 2019, President Donald J. Trump signed into law the Small Business Reorganization Act of 2019 (“SBRA”) (H.R. 3311), HAVEN Act (H.R. 2938), The National Guard and Reservists Debt Relief Extension Act of 2019 (H.R. 3304), and the Family Farmer Relief Act of 2019 (H.R. 2336). The CLLA is active in bankruptcy reform efforts and recently lobbied the Senate in support of the SBRA. The CLLA believes that the SBRA will enable small businesses, defined as having a total of noncontingent liquidated secured and unsecured debt of less than $2,725,625, to obtain Chapter 11 bankruptcy relief more quickly and cheaply. Among the features of the SBRA are (1) an automatically appointed, standing trustee whose authority and duties are similar to those of a standing Chapter 13 trustee; (2) creditors’ committees will not be appointed absent a showing of cause; (3) no disclosure statement will be required; (4) only the debtor may file a plan; and, perhaps most importantly, (5) provided the debtor contributes all of its disposal income over a three to five year period, and its proposed plan is “fair and equitable” and feasible, the bankruptcy court may confirm a Chapter 11 plan under the SBRA even without an assenting class of creditors, and even without paying unsecured claims in full. The statute will take effect on February 1, 2020 and will provide a significant opportunity for more small businesses to reorganize through Chapter 11. READ MORE

Small Business Reorganization Act of 2019 Passed by US Senate
Rolling Meadows, IL, August 2, 2019 – The Commercial Law League of America (“CLLA”) is pleased to announce that yesterday the United States Senate passed the Small Business Reorganization Act of 2019 (“SBRA”) (H.R. 3311), HAVEN Act (H.R. 2938), the Family Farmer Relief Act of 2019 (H.R. 2336), and the National Guard and Reservists Debt Relief Extension Act (H.R.3304). All four bills were passed by a voice vote. The bills will now be sent to President Trump for his consideration. The CLLA is active in bankruptcy reform efforts and has recently lobbied the Senate in support of the SBRA.   The SBRA (S. 1091) was a bipartisan bill sponsored in the Senate by Senators Grassley, Whitehouse, Tillis, Klobuchar, Ernst, and Blumenthal.  The CLLA believes that the SBRA will enable small businesses, defined as having a total of noncontingent, liquidated, secured, and unsecured debt of less than $2,725,625, to obtain Chapter 11 bankruptcy relief more quickly and cheaply.  Small businesses make up the vast majority of Chapter 11 bankruptcy filings, and it is expected that this will provide a cost effective and predictable remedy for small businesses seeking to reorganize, while at the same time providing the creditors’ legitimate right to be paid in the bankruptcy case.  READ MORE

Commercial Law League Sixth Annual Hill Day A Success
Rolling Meadows, IL 3/8/19 — On February 25, 2019, the Commercial Law League of America returned to Capitol Hill for its Sixth Annual Hill Day. This year’s delegation numbered 24, making it the largest group to date. Collectively the commercial law activists had over one hundred meetings with Congressional members and staff. The group was broken into three teams: bankruptcy venue reform, bankruptcy preference reform and creditors’ rights.

The bankruptcy venue reform team, which included retired Bankruptcy Judges Russell Nelms and Steven Rhodes, sought support for a new version of the Bankruptcy Venue Reform Act of 2018. This legislation, which was co-sponsored by U.S. Senators John Cornyn and Elizabeth Warren, would eliminate the ability of companies to file for bankruptcy in distant forums based on their state of incorporation or the location of an affiliate. The bill was drafted with assistance from Prof. Jay Westbrook of the University of Texas School of Law (who was also the 2018 recipient of the King Award).

The preference reform team advocated for an end to abusive practices related to recovery of preferential transfers, such as trustees suing everyone who received payments during the 90 days before bankruptcy and filing suit on small claims in distant forums. The CLLA’s package of reforms included a meet and confer requirement prior to filing a preference suit, requiring that preference suits seeking to recover $50,000 or less be filed in the defendant’s home district and including payments made under settlement agreements within the ordinary course of business defense.

The creditor’s rights contingent focused on H.R. 5082, a House Bill from the 115th Congress that made it out of the Financial Services Committee but did not make it to the floor for a full House of Representatives vote. 5082 sought to exempt attorneys actively engaged in litigation from the definition of a debt collector under the FDCPA. In addition, 5082 sought to remove attorneys engaged in litigation from CFPB authority unless the attorney was not a debt collector and is providing a financial product or service. Although it is unlikely that 5082 will be re-introduced in the 116th Congress, much positive feedback was provided, and the creditor’s rights team will continue to focus on drafting potential legislation addressing this critical area as well as reaching out to elected officials to build bi-partisan support.

Commercial Law League Celebrates Diversity by “Passing the Presidential Gavel”
Rolling Meadows, IL 3/8/19 — The Commercial Law League of America (CLLA) is pleased to announce that at the upcoming 125th National Convention on May 2-4, 2019, at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort in Orlando, Florida, the third-ever female President, Lorna Walker, Sweet & Walker, of San Francisco, California, will be “passing the gavel” to Timothy Wan, Senior Partner at Smith Carroad Levy Wan & Parikh, PC of Commack, New York.

“As the third madam president, I am honored that I will be the one to swear in Mr. Wan. I have worked closely with him over the past few years and know he will do an excellent job. I am confident that our league will benefit greatly from his leadership and enthusiasm,” stated Ms. Walker.

Mr. Wan enthusiastically remarked, “As the first-ever non-white President, and one of the youngest, I am honored to be receiving this heavy mantle. I am ready to roll up my sleeves, and make change happen – more than just because of finally breaking the diversity wall!”

Rolling Meadows, IL 11/21/18 — The Commercial Law League of America has filed an amicus brief in support of the Respondent in Obduskey v. McCarthy & Holthus, et al, pending before the United States Supreme Court.  The issue in Obduskey is whether the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act applies to a non-judicial foreclosure remedy under state law.  The consumer alleged that McCarthy & Holthus continued to send notices with regard to the foreclosure after receiving a request to verify the debt. Both the District Court and the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals held that a non-judicial procedure to foreclose a lien does not constitute debt collection under the FDCPA.  Link
