The National Consumer Law Center, Justice Catalyst Law, and Flitter Milz, P.C. filed a class action lawsuit against Maximus Federal Services, Inc. (Maximus), alleging that the company is engaging in illegal collection activity against thousands of federal student loan borrowers who submitted Borrower Defense to repayment claims to the U.S. Department of Education. Maximus unlawfully continued to process wage garnishments, tax refund offsets, and Social Security offsets against Plaintiff Jaimaria Bodor and other members of the prospective class, when Maximus was supposed to cease all collection activity during the pendency of the plaintiffs’ Borrower Defense applications.
