Fair Credit Reporting Act Class Action Against Lyft Dismissed For Lack Of Standing

Mealey's (October 6, 2016, 3:03 PM EDT) -- SAN FRANCISCO — In light of the concrete injury in fact requirement established by Spokeo Inc. v. Robins (136 S.Ct. 1540 [2016]), a California federal judge on Oct. 5 dismissed an employee’s putative Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) class action against ride-sharing service Lyft Inc., finding that the plaintiff’s statutory and privacy violation claims were insufficient to establish standing under Article III of the U.S. Constitution (Michael Nokchan v. Lyft Inc., No. 3:15-CV-03008, N.D. Calif.; 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 138582).
