Collection agency files suit against state representative
A Colorado collection agency filed a lawsuit against Rep. Barney Fisher, R-Richards, Friday in Vernon County Circuit Court.
Case.net records indicate this is not the first civil suit filed against Fisher, nor is it the first filed by CACV of Colorado, LLC, a collection agency. The company also sued Fisher on June 24, 2005, but the case was dismissed without prejudice.
Three other civil suits have been filed against Fisher, who will face Democrat Carla Keough in November. Cavalry Portfolio Services won a $6,134.60 judgment against the representative in 2004, while a judgment of $14,273.35 was entered against Fisher in June 2007.
Court records do not indicate Fisher has paid a cent in either case.
Another lawsuit, filed by Worldwide Asset Purchasing LLC, in 2005 was dismissed without prejudice.
Fisher was first elected to the Missouri House of Representatives in 2004.
