Quicken Loans defeats ECOA, FCRA allegations in class action complaint

Client(s) Quicken Loans Inc.

Jones Day successfully defended Quicken Loans Inc. against allegations that it had run afoul of the Equal Credit Opportunity Act (“ECOA”) and the Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRA”). Jones Day worked with Quicken Loans team members to promptly investigate the allegations and gather evidence demonstrating that the claims were unfounded. After drafting a motion to dismiss and motion to strike class allegations, Jones Day was able to convince the plaintiff’s counsel that the case lacked merit. As a result, the plaintiff voluntarily dismissed the entire complaint with prejudice prior to Quicken Loans expending resources on further motion practice or discovery.
