Donohue v. Quick Collect, Inc., No. 09-35183

In an action claiming that defendant collection agency violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) by charging a usurious rate of interest, summary judgment for defendant is affirmed where: 1) the creditor's assessment of finance charges was not a forbearance, and therefore there was no Washington usury law violation; and 2) the complaint correctly calculated the total debt plaintiff owed, accurately stated the principal owed, and accurately listed the total non-principal amount owed inclusive of interest and finance charges.
