The Cochell Law Firm is proud to announce that just last week, the Central District Court of California ruled in favor of Steve’s Client, Jason Cardiff sanctioning the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) for discovery abuse in seeking monetary relief under the FTC Act. This appears to be the first time that the FTC has been sanctioned by a court in an FTC case. In another precedent-setting decision, the district court ordered that the FTC pay all fees incurred by a Receiver following the Supreme Court’s ruling in AMG Capital Management v. FTC. www.scotusblog.com/case-files/cases/amg-capital-management-llc-v-federal-trade-commission/
The history of major wins for the Cochell Law Firm are not a fluke. The founder of the firm is outperforming all the national firms when to comes victories against the FTC. Even the Facebook legal team relied on the result that Stephen obtained in FTC v. Credit Bureau Center, as the legal foundation for its win against the FTC. In FTC v. Facebook, the district court dismissed the FTC’s potential trillion dollar allegations against Facebook.
When you ask Mr. Cochell what makes the difference and why he has been so effective and overwhelmingly successful in defending his clients against agency overreach, his answer is: “I measure the agency’s conduct against the actual statute’s language and history to determine if agency officials have overstepped their authority and engaged in misconduct.” Mr. Cochell further stated that: “I believe that if you want a fighting chance against the FTC or Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (“CFPB”), you need a lawyer who doesn’t just settle cases but has a track record for going to court, winning and holding the FTC and government agencies accountable.”
