PITTSBURGH – A student loan servicer is alleged to have failed to comply with a federal agency's demand.
Consumer Financial Protection Bureau filed a petition to enforce civil investigative demand (CID) on Nov. 16 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania against Heartland Campus Solutions, ECSI.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff issued a CID on May 18 to the defendant as part of an investigation "to determine whether a student loan servicer or other persons have engaged or are engaging in unlawful acts and practices in connection with the servicing of loans." The suit states that CID was withdrawn and a new CID issued in June.
The plaintiff alleges that the defendant has not complied with the June CID.
The plaintiff seeks order the defendant to show cause in writing why it should not be required to comply with the June 9 CID, order the defendant to fully comply with the June 9 CID, court costs and any further relief the court grants. It is represented by Enforcement Director Kristen Donoghue.
