Where a credit card debtor brought an action claiming that a lawyer impermissibly tried to collect compound interest that was not allowed under state law, even though the debtor was also a lawyer, the defendant did not contest the holding that the unsophisticated-consumer standard applied, and the false representation of the amount of a debt was a material violation of the law, so the judgment is reversed and remanded.
Judgment is reversed and remanded.
