I don't want Bryan in Congress:
Bryan Smith, who is a lawyer and should know the law, made an illegal $9,000 loan to a congressional candidate that violated Federal Election law.
In 2010, Smith, who is a lawyer and should know the law, made an illegal $9,000 loan to a congressional candidate that violated Federal Election law.
Bryan Smith, a personal injury lawyer, has also enriched himself by collecting debts from Idaho veterans and working families struggling to make ends meet.
Smith owns debt collection businesses that have targeted veterans, the disabled and other Idahoans who can’t afford to pay their medical bills. One of Smith’s debt collection businesses charges interest rates up to 99% and attorney’s fees that are often double the principal amount of the loan, which a judge described as “excessive” and “unconscionable.” View All Cases (Excel File).
Smith, a personal injury lawyer, tried to enrich himself by opposing efforts in the Idaho legislature to limit frivolous lawsuits and outrageous jury awards that cost Idaho businesses millions of dollars and drive up health care costs.
Bryan Smith vocally opposed common-sense legislation to limit frivolous lawsuits and cap on punitive damages to $250,000, or three times compensatory damages, whichever is greater.
Smith was delinquent in paying property taxes on an office building that houses one of his two debt collection businesses.
During the period of time that the property taxes were delinquent on his office building, Smith’s debt collection businesses nonetheless filed 180 lawsuits against Idahoans in order to collect delinquent debts from them.
