News Release by FCRA Expert Witness, John Ulzheimer.
2012 continues to be a busy year for FCRA lawsuits, FCRA lawyers and FCRA expert witnesses. According to WebRecon, a Michigan based Litigant Data tracking bureau, FCRA lawsuits are up 15% year to date in 2012 over the same time period (January through September) in 2011. And while the pace of lawsuits has slowed considerably (at one time they were up over 90% year to date compared to 2011) 2012 is still shaping up to meet or exceed 2011’s record numbers.
Often these types of lawsuits involved a consumer plaintiff suing a credit industry player such as a bank, credit reporting agency (or some other form of consumer reporting agency), or a collection agency. The allegations can rage from reasonable procedures to permissible purpose violations (improper access) to re-investigation issues. It’s been my experience as an FCRA expert witness with over 100 cases under my belt that often these allegations are accompanied by suggestions of credit report damage, credit score damage and credit reputation damages.
So, if you’re in the need of a well experienced FCRA expert witness with a balanced case distribution (plaintiff/defense) who comes from the credit industry (Equifax, FICO, Credit.com) and is twice FCRA certified by the credit industry’s trade association please contact me at 1.866.985.8884.
