3] To the extent that the complaint could be liberally

3] To the extent that the complaint could be liberally construed to assert an additional cause of action under the Fair Debt Collection PracticesAct ("FDCPA"), 15 U.S.C. § 1692, this claim also lacks merit. "It is well established that the FDCPA applies only to persons who collect the debtsof others and does not apply to those who collect their own debts." Caires v. JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A., 880 F. Supp. 2d 288, 306 (D. Conn.2012) (collecting cases); see also 15 U.S.C. § 1692a(6) (defining the term "debt collector" within the FDCPA to mean persons who are involvedin the collection of "debts owed or due or asserted to be owed or due another." (emphasis added)). The allegations of the third amendedcomplaint demonstrate that plaintiff entered into a loan contract, rendering any of the defendants as plaintiff's creditors, and that Chase arguablytook action to enforce the terms of its own loan agreement. Doc. #88 at 8, 1112.Therefore Chase, as a creditor collecting its own debt, is notliable under the FDCPA. See Book v. Mortgage Electronic Registration Sys., 608 F. Supp. 2d 277, 284 (D. Conn. 2009).

Florida. HOA. I am in a deed restricted with county roads and rights of way. We have an owner who does not like cars parking on the grassy area next to the sidewalk, and wants to take control of them and prohibit cars from parking anywhere except their driveways. The roads, sidewalks, and all are county property. Can the association get the county to deed over ownership, and if so, can the association then have the cars towed?

My husband is being sued by his dad(plaintiff) for possesion

My husband is being sued by his dad(plaintiff) for possesion of a motorcyle he(dad) cosigned for with him last year. "property being wrongfully withheld by defendant(myhusband) is the complaint. On the paperwork we have "afidavit for sale of motor vehicle" for the loan the buyer is listed as "my husbands name" OR "his dads name". On the DMV certificate of title and registration (not the actual title yet) Their names are ***** ***** NEW Primary Owner "my husbands name" then below it NEW Co-Owner "his dads name". My husband recieves the bill for the payments on the motorcycle and is paid and in "goodstanding" with the lender. His dad is having other financial issues and wants to take posession of the motorcylce and sell it. He tells us he can do this because he owns the motorcycle too according to the paperwork. My question is does he really have a right to take the motorcycle. Also we have to give an answer to the court and I want to answer " I deny I am responsible because" I (myhusband) is the primary owner. Would this answer be correct?JA: You end up paying for the answer if you are satisfied with it.Customer: what does this mean?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: south carolinaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: My husbands dad filed a complaint of wrongfully withheld property at the magistrates courtJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: nothing I can think of right now
