Wentworth v. Metrodata Class Action Settlement

Wentworth v. Metrodata Class Action Settlement

What Is the Case About?

This lawsuit alleges that Metrodata violated the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (the “FCRA”), 15 U.S.C. §§ 1681a-1681x, in the preparation of a background check (or consumer report) about you. This lawsuit alleges, among other things, that Metrodata wrongfully included adverse, non-conviction public record information older than seven years in a consumer report about you in violation of 15 U.S.C. § 1681c.

Metrodata denies that it violated the FCRA or any other law with respect to your consumer report but has entered this settlement to avoid the expense and uncertainty of litigation.

Who Are the Class Members?

On November 9, 2020, the Court certified the following Class:

All persons within the United States (including all territories and other political subdivisions of the United States): (a) who were subject to a consumer report furnished by Metrodata from June 29, 2015 through the present; and (b) whose report contained any public record of criminal arrest, charge, information, indictment or other adverse item of information other than records of actual conviction of a crime, which antedated the report by more than 7 years.

Class members had a consumer report about them prepared by Metrodata between June 29, 2015 and November 9, 2020 that contained adverse public record information that was older than seven years. Excluded from the Class are any officers or directors of Metrodata, any legal representatives, heirs, successors, assignees of Metrodata, and any judge assigned to hear this action.
