The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) provides consumers with a statutory cause of action against creditors that willfully or negligently furnish inaccurate information to consumer reporting agencies. The damages for FCRA liability can be steep and may include statutory damages, actual damages, punitive damages, and attorney’s fees. In the past year, consumer rights attorneys have continued to pursue FCRA claims arising out of reporting following consumer bankruptcies, and their theories of liability continue to evolve. This webinar will explore these theories, as well as the judicial responses.

Discussion topics will include:

  • The FCRA’s requirements for a private cause of action;
  • Developments in bankruptcy-related FCRA claims and theories; and
  • Recent rulings on bankruptcy-related FCRA claims.
