Linebarger is not above the law!

Iraheta v. Linebarger, Federal Suit, the Sequel

Posted by irahetaj on December 19,

13 days left in 2015… and there’s no pause button!

A short recap of 2015:

  • I filed a federal suit in Houston, Texas, against Linebarger: Iraheta v. Linebarger Goggan Blair & Sampson LLP et al.; Cause No. 4:15-cv-03227 in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of Texas, Houston Division.
  • As expected, Linebarger filed a Motion to Dismiss.. same argument, they claim that the “Linebarger Firm’s conduct is protected by attorney immunity”.
  • I filed my Response to their Motion to Dismiss.  It’ll be interesting to see how the Federal Court will rule.  Will it let Linebarger continue to be the “The debt collector that runs Texas”or hold Linebarger accountable?  2016 will give us that answer.
  • A Federal Court in Georgia ruled that my Federal Suit against Linebarger should be dismissed because it lacked jurisdiction over Linebarger.  It was a long shot, but the Court ruled properly and I was forced to file in Houston, Texas, the long-awaited Federal Suit against Linebarger.

If you haven’t read CNN’s investigation into Linebarger… you should; makes for an interesting read.

I wish everyone a Merry Christmas (or Happy Holidays.. should you not believe in Christmas) and a Happy New Year!!
