PWCK Appointed to Leadership Committee in Student Loan Servicer Litigation


On October 12, 2018, District Judge C. Darnell Jones appointed Peiffer Wolf Carr & Kane (“PWCK”) attorney Brandon Wise to the 6-person executive committee in the multi-district litigation titled In re: FedLoan Student Loan Servicer Litigation. (18-md-2833).

On March 1, 2017, PWCK filed one of the first cases, nationwide, alleging that the Pennsylvanian Higher Education Assistance Agency (d/b/a “FedLoan” / “PHEAA”) steered borrowers into forbearance and/or deferment instead of helping borrowers enroll in more advantageous income-driven repayment plans, which ultimately financially benefits FedLoan.

Currently, there are ten cases consolidated before Judge C. Darnell Jones in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.

Other cases in the consolidated litigation involve issues faced by teachers in complying with TEACH Grant requirements, which causes grants to be converted into student loans.

If you have had issues with TEACH Grants being converted into loans, or if you have been steered into forbearance or deferment when an income-driven repayment plan would have been more financially advantageous, you may contact PWCK at 314-833-4827 or bwise@pwcklegal.com.
