U.S. Chamber files amicus brief

June 09, 2014

In its brief, the Chamber urged the Supreme Court of Colorado to affirm the decision of the Colorado Court of Appeals that held the petitioners lend money to plaintiffs in personal injury cases and charge interest on that loan. The circumstances and financial terms of lawsuit lending unnecessarily prolong personal injury litigation, and thus occupy court and business resources that could be better utilized. The ultimate beneficiary is the lawsuit lender. The Chamber argued that to avoid the problems caused by unregulated lawsuit lending, petitioners’ conduct should be regulated by the Colorado Uniform Consumer Credit Code (“UCCC”).

The Chamber filed the brief jointly with the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce.

David R. Fine of McKenna Long & Aldridge LLP served as counsel for the amici in this case.
