Case law addressing the FDCPA has expressly held that the litigation privilege does not apply to conduct proscribed by the FDCPA. In support, I've cited two cases: Irwin v. Mascott (N.D.

Supp. 2d 1065, which holds that the California litigation privilege bars state law claims, including those under Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, for allegedly wrongful debt collection practices engaged in by defendants in the context of litigation. Authorities for no FDCPA litigation privilege: Nutter v. Messerli & Kramer, 07-00293 (D. Minn. 2007), Blevins v. Hudson & Keyse, Inc., 395 F. Supp. 2d 655, 662 (S.D. Ohio 2004); see also Campos v.
