Fair Credit Reporting Act: Emerging Trends in Consumer Reporting Law

Big Data and technological advances are outpacing consumer reporting laws and regulations. The Supreme Court just muddied the waters with its Spokeo decision on consumer injury in Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) cases. Class action litigants and regulatory agencies are beginning to zero in on the novel litigation and enforcement possibilities. The result is a growing wave of challenges pushing the traditional limits of the consumer reporting law. These trends, combined with the FCRA’s private right of action and substantial statutory penalties, create significant risks for companies that compile, use, or furnish information about consumers.

This 60-minute teleconference, exclusively for industry participants and counsel, will cover:

  • An overview of the FCRA and consumer reporting related litigation.
  • Emerging trends in consumer reporting litigation and enforcement, including the impact of Spokeo and questions of who is a consumer reporting agency and what is a consumer report.
  • Recent Federal Trade Commission and Consumer Financial Protection Bureau enforcement actions and guidance.
  • Lessons learned and FCRA compliance tips.

Please join Morrison & Foerster Partner Angela Kleine and Associate Ben Patterson, and Navigant Consulting, Inc. Managing Director Beji Varghese and Director David King, as they discuss these emerging trends in FCRA litigation and regulatory enforcement.
