Ten years ago, creditors in California could garnish wages, put levies on bank accounts, and take other drastic measures if an average consumer fell into delinquency on their debt.

On May 23, 2024, EKO and Community Law Center hosted Senator Bob Wieckowski in conversation with Santa Clara Law Profs. Scott Maurer and Gary G. Neustadter looking at the gains made through legislation in California for average debtors since then and discuss the state of consumers’ current slate of rights and protections.

The materials for the presentation are available, below.
