Equifax, TransUnion, Experian and other defendants were sued Wednesday in Connecticut District Court for claims under the Fair Credit Reporting Act. The court case was brought by the Law Offices of Kathryn R. Sylvester on behalf of consumer Jennifer Gonzalez. Counsel have not yet appeared for the defendants.
Gonzalez alleges in the complaint that the credit-reporting agencies, along with the Terminix International Company Limited Partnership, produced inaccurate credit reports that resulted in “particularized and concrete harm” to the plaintiff. Gonzalez claims inaccurate account information was provided by Terminix to the credit-reporting companies, which in turn published the erroneous information in violation of the Fair Credit Reporting Act. The plaintiff asserts defendants’ actions were willful and negligent, and she seeks actual and punitive damages.
