The centerpiece of Marx's claim (presented in the Supreme Court by Allison Zieve of Public Citizen) is that barring costs here is the only way to make sense of all the words of the FDCPA.
The relevant provision of the FDCPA states that the court, in a case of harassment and bad faith, "may award * * * fees * * * and costs. If that sentence means that a court can award both fees and costs in cases of harassment and bad faith, but can award neither fees nor costs in cases that do not involve harassment and bad faith, then the inclusion of a reference to "costs" is necessary. But if the result is that a court can award costs to the prevailing party in all cases (even if the plaintiff's suits did not involve bad faith or harassment), then (Zieve argued forcefully) Congress might as well have left out the reference to costs. As presented in her opinion, that argument came off as somewhat eccentric; it seems best to surmise, I suppose, that she (like the majority) found Blatt's response to Zieve's principal argument so devastating that she felt compelled to rest primarily on some other ground.
