Description: Dallas, Texas consumer credit lawyer represented Plaintiff, who sued Defendants on Fair Credit Reporting Act violation theories.

The claims made and defenses asserted by the parties are not available.

The Act (Title VI of the Consumer Credit Protection Act) protects information collected by consumer reporting agencies such as credit bureaus, medical information companies and tenant screening services. Information in a consumer report cannot be provided to anyone who does not have a purpose specified in the Act. Companies that provide information to consumer reporting agencies also have specific legal obligations, including the duty to investigate disputed information. In addition, users of the information for credit, insurance, or employment purposes must notify the consumer when an adverse action is taken on the basis of such reports. The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act added many provisions to this Act primarily relating to record accuracy and identity theft. The Dodd-Frank Act transferred to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau most of the rulemaking responsibilities added to this Act by the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act and the Credit CARD Act, but the Commission retains all its enforcement authority.

Outcome: 07/23/2021 40 STIPULATION OF DISMISSAL with Prejudice of Trans Union LLC by Trans Union LLC. (Attachments: # 1 Proposed Order) (Acosta, James) (Entered: 07/23/2021)
07/23/2021 Civil case terminated. (chmb) (Entered: 07/23/2021)
