151932P.pdf   09/21/2016  Daniel Haney  v.  Portfolio Recovery Associates
   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:  15-1932
   U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri - St. Louis    
   [PUBLISHED] [Per Curiam - Before Wollman, Melloy and Colloton, Circuit 
   Judges] 
   Civil case - Fair Debt Collections Practices Act. Missouri statutory 
   prejudgment interest remains available following the charge-off of a 
   credit card debt; because the original creditors' acts of charging off the 
   debts did not effectuate wavier of statutory interest, the assignment of 
   the debt to defendant merely transferred the entitlement to such interest 
   to defendant; any demand requirement that exists as precondition to the 
   accrual of statutory prejudgment interest was satisfied by the original 
   creditors' demands on plaintiff; plaintiff did state a claim that 
   defendants' attempt to collect statutory prejudgment interest on the 
   interest portion of the charge-off balance violated Missouri restrictions 
   on the collection of compound interest, and the court erred in dismissing 
   the counts alleging this claim; plaintiff has established viable Section 
   1692e and Section 1692f(1) claims by alleging false statements and 
   collection attempts regarding the availability of compound interest; 
   defendant's prayers for relief in its state court actions were not false 
   representations or an unfair or unconscionable means to collect a debt 
   within the meaning of the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act. Judge 
   Melloy, concurring in part and dissenting in part.

   [UNPUBLISHED] [Per Curiam - Before Wollman, Arnold and Gruender, Circuit 
   Judges]

   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:  16-6008
   U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Minnesota - Minneapolis    
   [PUBLISHED] [Schermer, Author, with Nail and Shodeen, Bankruptcy Judges]

166009P.pdf   09/21/2016  Barbara Wigley  v.  Michael Wigley
   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:  16-6009
   U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Minnesota - Minneapolis    
   [PUBLISHED] [Schermer, Author, with Nail and Shodeen, Bankruptcy Judges] 
   Bankruptcy Appellate Panel. Barbara Wigley lacked standing to bring this 
   appeal, and the appeal is dismissed; her interests are not central to the 
   bankruptcy case and she is not a person aggrieved by the court's orders; 
   to the extent she has standing, the court did not abuse its discretion 
   when it denied approval of the Settlement in Debtor's Second Modified Plan 
   and confirmed the Debtor's Fourth Modified Plan.
