Violations of the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA)
The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA), enacted in 2003, is a federal law that provides a number of financial and credit protections to military service members while they are serving their country. Those on active duty or called to new duty stations often find it difficult to be physically present for civil proceedings and to meet their financial and legal obligations at home. Recognizing this, the SCRA protects servicemembers’ legal and economic interests by providing for the temporary suspension of certain legal and administrative actions. The SCRA applies to any judicial or administrative proceeding in the United States and its territories, including both federal and state courts and administrative agencies, but excluding criminal proceedings. Chimicles Schwartz Kriner & Donaldson-Smith LLP (CSK&D) is investigating potential violations of the SCRA by various lending and banking institutions.
