Experian sued by Mississippi

Haven't seen a post about this yet.

 

"WASHINGTON (AP) — Mississippi has sued credit reporting giant Experian, alleging sweeping errors in the company's data and routine violations of consumer protection laws. Mississippi's action — and a previously unreported multi-state investigation of credit bureaus led by Ohio — represent a significant new legal challenge to the industry."

Thanks for posting the article link - I always found Equifax to be the worst, but Experian is a pain to work with too - especially in getting disputes corrected. Glad to see there might be a price to pay for short cuts like eOscar.

State of Missisippi Sues Experian

http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/business/2014/06/17/mississippi-complaint-tees-off-on-experi...

 

The lawsuit accuses Experian of knowingly including error-riddled data in the credit files of millions of Americans, jeopardizing their ability to obtain loans and sensitive government security clearances, and fouling employment-related background checks. Experian has even wrongly reported that consumers are on a federal terrorism watch list.

 

Can someone post the Docket #  ? How can this information, that there is a Experian has been sued be used by consumers ?

Personally, I wish they had sued Equifax.

+1.  I never had an issue with Experian.  However, Equifax, they are on another planet.
