In December, FCRA led the way with a 12.8% increase over November, while TCPA (-6.7%) and FDCPA (-3%) were both down. The pattern holds for full-year numbers as well, with FCRA (+3.5%) up and TCPA (-48.3%) & FDCPA (-4.4%) both down for the full year of 2021.
In other news, putative class actions represented 2.6% of FCRA lawsuits filed in November. About 39%(!) of all plaintiffs who filed suit last month had filed at least once before.
