Kilgore v. KeyBank Appeal Briefing Complete

All of the briefing is complete in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in the California proposed class action case on behalf of California residents who attended Silver State Helicopters, obtained student loans from KeyBank to do so, and were still enrolled at SSH at the time that it filed bankruptcy. KeyBank has cited the dismissal of this case in the District Court when threatening its borrowers with collection action. A hearing date is anticipated in March. The ruling in this case, while only binding on California residents, is expected to have influence on KeyBank with respect to its dealings with all of its former SSH student borrowers. For now, KeyBank continues to place collection calls and write collection letters to former SSH students, without suing or seeking arbitration against any of them. If you are my client and you receive a collection call or letter from KeyBank, respond by telling the collector that I represent you and ask the collector to call me at my office: 310 271-6223.
