Consumer agencies file joint amicus brief in FCRA dispute

The Federal Trade Commission and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau together filed an amicus brief in a case before the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in support of consumer protections under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).

The agencies’ brief supports the appeal of the district court’s decision in Suluki v. Credit One Bank, NA. They argue that the district court ‘overlooked’ the FCRA requirement that a furnisher of credit information delete information disputed by a consumer when the information cannot be verified.
