Plaintiff in a class action lawsuit filed against Equifax in Virginia has successfully obtained class certification of her claims. The lawsuit alleges that Equifax misreported the status of certain state court judgments. The certified class consists of consumers who told Equifax of a disposed state court judgment before Equifax published an inaccurate report between February 2008 and February 2013. The Court found that "“Equifax blurred the critical difference between the manner in which it collects information about the entry of judgments and the manner in which it collects information about the disposition of judgments." This same plaintiff settled a similar lawsuit with Trans Union in 2013 for $1.4 million.
