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. 153686U.pdf 09/21/2016 Alma Infante v. City of Hastings U.S. Court of Appeals Case No: 15-3686 U.S. District Court for the District of Nebraska - Lincoln [UNPUBLISHED] [Per Curiam - Before Wollman, Arnold and Gruender, Circuit Judges] Civil case - Civil rights. Plaintiff's notice of appeal was only timely as to the district court's post-judgment orders; the district court's orders, including its order denying a motion for an extension of time to file a notice of appeal, are affirmed without comment. 166008P.pdf 09/21/2016 Lariat Companies, Inc. v. Michael Wigley 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] Bankruptcy Appellate Panel. Bankruptcy court did not err in denying Lariat's requests to dismiss debtor's case as a bad faith filing or to convert the Chapter 11 to a Chapter 7. 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.
