The Baltimore City Circuit Court has approved the settlement of a class action case filed by Santoni, Vocci & Ortega, LLC against a law firm representing a Baltimore-based bail bond company, obtaining relief for over 100 Marylanders. The lawsuit alleged that the law firm violated federal debt collection and state debt collection laws by filing lawsuits against class members in the wrong venue – namely Baltimore City – when the class members lived and signed the contract in a different county. The class members will receive monetary compensation and the law firm has since stopped the practice of filing in the wrong venue. The case is Renee Day v. The Law Office of Ralph L. Sapia, P.A., Case No.: 24C17003361.
