11 a.m. 71A03-1305-CC-175 . Nathan Wertz appeals the trial court’s judgment dismissing his counterclaim against Asset Acceptance, LLC, pursuant to Indiana Trial Rule 12(B)(6) for failing to state a claim upon which relief can be granted.  In his counterclaim, Wertz alleged that Asset, a Delaware limited liability company with its principal place of business in Michigan, had attempted to collect a debt from Wertz, which it had purchased from the original lending institution, in Indiana without first having obtained a license from the Department of Financial Institutions pursuant to Indiana’s Uniform Consumer Credit Code.  The parties also dispute whether Asset was required to obtain a license under the Indiana Collection Agency Act, whether Wertz’s counterclaim sufficiently pleaded a claim under the Indiana Deceptive Consumer Sales Act, and whether Wertz’s counterclaim entitled him to relief under the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.

  1. Being dedicated to a genre keeps it alive until the masses catch up to the "trend." Kent and Bill are keepin' it LIVE!! Thank you gentlemen..you know your JAZZ.

  2. Hemp has very little THC which is needed to kill cancer cells! Growing cannabis plants for THC inside a hemp field will not work...where is the fear? From not really knowing about Cannabis and Hemp or just not listening to the people teaching you through testimonies and packets of info over the last few years! Wake up Hoosier law makers!

  3. If our State Government would sue for their rights to grow HEMP like Kentucky did we would not have these issues. AND for your INFORMATION many medical items are also made from HEMP. FOOD, FUEL,FIBER,TEXTILES and MEDICINE are all uses for this plant. South Bend was built on Hemp. Our states antiquated fear of cannabis is embarrassing on the world stage. We really need to lead the way rather than follow. Some day.. we will have freedom in Indiana. And I for one will continue to educate the good folks of this state to the beauty and wonder of this magnificent plant.

  4. Put aside all the marijuana concerns, we are talking about food and fiber uses here. The federal impediments to hemp cultivation are totally ridiculous. Preposterous. Biggest hemp cultivators are China and Europe. We get most of ours from Canada. Hemp is as versatile as any crop ever including corn and soy. It's good the governor laid the way for this, regrettable the buffoons in DC stand in the way. A statutory relic of the failed "war on drugs"

  5. Cannabis is GOOD for our PEOPLE and GOOD for our STATE... 78% would like to see legal access to the product line for better Hoosier Heath. There is a 25% drop in PAIN KILLER Overdoses in states where CANNABIS is legal.
