A Texas company has been temporarily banned by court order from doing business in Kansas for failure to respond to an outstanding subpoena. Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt says Student Loan Relief of Dallas, Texas, has been temporarily banned from doing business in Kansas. District Judge Theresa Watson entered an order last week in Shawnee County District Court prohibiting the company from engaging in consumer transactions in Kansas until the court finds it is in compliance with the subpoena.
During the course of the attorney general’s investigation into consumer complaints about the company’s business practices, Student Loan Relief failed to respond to an investigative subpoena in violation of Kansas law. If proven, allegations in the complaints against the company would constitute violations of the Kansas Consumer Protection Act.
