Experian obtains confirmation of final arbitration award in dispute with repeat litigant
Clients Experian Information Solutions, Inc.
Jones Day client Experian Information Solutions, Inc. obtained confirmation of a final arbitration award in its favor in a dispute brought by a repeat litigant alleging violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act. The plaintiff's complaints arose of out of disputed inquires that he claimed were either the result of identity theft or skip tracing/debt collectors.
The plaintiff brought a complaint in the District Court of Rhode Island seeking to arbitrate his disputes with Experian pursuant to an arbitration agreement with Experian's affiliated entity, Consumerinfo.com. An American Arbitration Association arbitrator rejected all of the claims against Experian, and awarded the plaintiff $0. That award was later confirmed by the district court, which dismissed the matter with prejudice.
