Irving Debt Settlement Company Barred

An Irving company that helps consumers resolve debt is barred from doing business in West Virginia -- at least temporarily.

In issuing Thursday's decision, Kanawha County Circuit Judge Irene Berger also ordered Able Debt Settlement Inc. to post a notice to that effect on its Web site. It also must individually notify its West Virginia clients.

Attorney General Darrell McGraw is suing Able Debt, accusing it of ruining the credit of at least 21 state residents instead of helping them resolve their debt.

Able Debt Settlement has denied wrongdoing.

Assistant Attorney General Douglas Davis says Berger's ruling remains in effect until the case is fully resolved.

McGraw is seeking restitution and penalties.

A trial date has not yet been set.
