Case Home

A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit that alleged violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRA”). Specifically, Plaintiff alleged claims for relief for Defendant’s purported violations of 15 U.S.C. §§ 1681b(b)(2)(A)(i)–(ii) alleging, inter alia, Defendant obtained and used consumer reports for employment purposes on Plaintiff and other class members without making a lawful disclosure. Id. Plaintiff has also asserted a claim for relief for Defendant’s purported violations of 15 U.S.C. § 1681b(b)(3)(A) alleging Defendant disqualified him and other class members from employment without providing the required notice of intent to take adverse action based on the results of their background reports.

Defendant denies the allegations but has agreed to the settlement to avoid the uncertainties and expenses of continuing the case.
