Fair Credit Reporting Act Class Action Against Big Lots Survives Dismissal
Mealey's (January 22, 2016, 8:03 AM EST) -- CHICAGO — An Illinois federal judge on Jan. 19 concluded that a plaintiff sufficiently alleged that Big Lots Stores Inc. did not comply with the stand-alone disclosure requirement of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) when it obtained a consumer report on a prospective employee, denying the retailer’s motion to dismiss the putative class action (Shaundrenika Robrinzine v. Big Lots Stores Inc., No. 1:15-cv-07239, N.D. Ill.; 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 5689).
