Time Warner Cable Has Been Named in a Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) Class Action Lawsuit

Time Warner Cable has been named in a Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) class action lawsuit filed on February 6, 2015 week in the Eastern District of Wisconsin. The class action complaint alleges that the company violated portions of the Fair Credit Reporting Act in its employment background screening process. The Plaintiff is the same guy who was named in another FCRA class action lawsuit. Same law firm, same plaintiff, same allegations. Once again, the case focuses on the portion of the FCRA that requires a “clear and conspicuous disclosure” about the background check that is made in writing “in a document that consists solely of the disclosure.”

Case Name: Cory Groshek v. Time Warner Cable Inc, Case No. 2:15CV00157, U.S. District Ct. for the Eastern District of Wisconsin.
