    Default Tag Teamed by Two Attorneys for the Same Credit Card

    My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: Montana
    Is it legal for a credit card company to sue me using two different attorneys and two different case numbers for the same account?

    Exactly what has happened?

    If you were sued once, the lawsuit was dismissed without prejudice, and you're now being sued by a different firm, that's permissible.

    If you're being simultaneously sued in two courts over the same debt, that's not proper and one of the suits should be dismissed.

    Thanks for the response, both of your scenarios are now correct. At the time of my posting the first suit had not been dismissed. Now it has been dismissed without prejudice. It took nearly 2 months for them to move to dismiss. In the mean time I had no idea what was going on, thanks for the answer.
