Appeals Court: Debt collectors' false statement must be relevant

Picture this: someone is driving through Cincinnati on I-71 at 100 mph and is pulled over by police. Using driver's license information, the officer writes a speeding ticket, including the driver's weight listed at 180 lb. on the license. Do you think a court would toss out the speeding ticket because it turns out that the driver actually weighs 185? Of course not. The person's weight is immaterial; the speeding offense had nothing to do with the listed weight.
