Past Due at Balch & Bingham

The Birmingham Business Journal reports:

Balch & Bingham LLP has launched a new blog. Past Due is a consumer finance litigation block and a resource that will provide timely legal developments and insights impacting the consumer credit industry. The blog,, will monitor changes in case law, regulations and legislation to help companies navigate their compliance, enforcement and litigation issues. Through the blog, Balch attorneys will provide insight regarding the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, Telephone Consumer Protection Act, Fair Credit Reporting Act, and consumer bankruptcy litigation, as well as state and federal Unfair and Deceptive Acts and Practices acts and regulations.

Although the blog is informative and well put together, we believe what is Past Due at Balch & Bingham is

  1. A public apology to the North Birmingham African-American community.
  2. A review and settlement of the alleged “unfair and deceptive” conduct in the Burt Newsome Conspiracy case.
  3. An investigation into the alleged unsavory pattern of behavior in an alleged “whites-only” land grab in Vincent, Alabama.
  4. Signs of life from Balch’s first-ever Chief Compliance Officer Steve Feaga who should have completed a top-to-bottom review of the firm by now.
