Weiner & Sand Files FCRA Action against Checkr, Inc.

Posted by Andrew Weiner | Sep 06, 2018 | 0 Comments

On August 28, 2018, Weiner & Sand LLC, on behalf of its client Kevin Estrada, filed a proposed class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California against Checkr, Inc.  Plaintiff alleges that Checkr violated California's Investigative Consumer Reporting Agencies Act and Section 1681e(b) of the Fair Credit Reporting Act.  According to the lawsuit, Checkr published inaccurate information about Mr. Estrada and other proposed class members in consumer reports when it misreported violations of California Vehicle Code Section 22526 as “moving violations” on its consumer reports, even though California law classifies these violations as "parking" or "stopping" violations, and not "moving" violations.  The case is Estrada v. Checkr, Inc., Case Number 3:18-cv-05290 in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California.
