As many of you know, the Student Loan industry is booming, and not in a way that benefits students and borrowers. One lender in particular, Sally Mae was recently featured on 60 Minutes (video Part I - Part II) in a segment exposing their predatory (and highly profitable) lending practices.
Student Loan Justice recently submitted a call for experienced Attorneys to join a consortium of legal experts to examine the abuse perpetrated by Sally Mae and other predatory lenders:
We are organizing a group of attorneys who will be willing to work with Student Justice and pursue cases against Sallie Mae and other predatory student lenders. We need attorneys with expertise in RICO, Fraud, Truth in Lending, Bankruptcy, Civil Discovery, Student Loan Law and General Litigation and other relevant areas. We will build a consortium of lawyers who can work together. We need a critical mass of at least 25 experienced attorneys and 5-10 inexperienced lawyers. The consortium will be coordinated by Dr. Bruce W. Ebert in California. We will work closely with Student Justice to decide what litigation to pursue. Any questions may be directed to attorney Dr. Ebert at firstname.lastname@example.org, 916 781-7875.
Please, for the sake of what little good is left in America, if you can assist or know someone who can please contact email@example.com with your information.
