>I have a friend (really) and she just recieved a summons that M->Credit Corp is starting a lawsuit against her. The thing is she >has been paying Evergreen Hospital (who turned the bill over to >M-Creidt Corp.) payments of $50/month. She has made over 10 >payments, so my question is: Since Evergreen Hospital Accepted >these payments, isn't this an implied contract? Do they have >the "right" to turn this over to a collections agency?

I teach commercial law at a local univ. here
and my experience is that the fair debt practices col. act is where
you would look this up. I have dealt with M-Creidt Corp. too. with
total success in never hearing from them again with papers served.

>Also, the Collection Company called my friend at work 3 times
>(she told them not too after the first time). Isn't that a violation >of the US Code of Collections - Chapter 41, subchapter V, >section 1692c? AND, should she file a counter complaint against >the Collection Agency when she files her response to the >summons and lawsuit? I am not a lawyer, but I am helping her >as she can't afford one right now (I sure do want to go to law >school...I like researching stuff like this!)

If you like researching so much why don't you enroll in higher
education class?
