Other Collection/Repossession

Collected research

I get to give all sorts of advice out here in Frederick, and usually have to do a bit of research to confirm what I think I remember about some of the issues presented. Here's some research on some of these topics, just so we all don't have to reinvent the wheel.

Minors and contracts:
We were horrified, in our office, by the result in Schmidt v. Prince George's Hospital, 366 Md. 535, 784 A.2d 1112 (2001). The holding in that case was that minors can be held liable for "necessaries" contracted for on their behalf.

A memo that Louise Carwell circulated last year on the new law regulating hospital debt collections. Another bill which will add additional protections for consumers faced with hospital bill collections looks like it is going to pass during this legislative session.
