Thomas v. Equifax Information Services, LLC – watershed settlement

CLA represented a class against Equifax for violations of the FCRA relating to its reporting of public records like liens and judgments. The result was a groundbreaking, nationwide settlement in which Equifax stopped reporting such information for a period of several years, and could only commence reporting them again if it met certain requirements designed to make that reporting as accurate as possible. Equifax also agreed to the creation of a no-fault remedy for recovery of significant money damages for any consumer that was harmed by the reporting of inaccurate civil judgments or tax liens.
