Tarter Krinsky & Drogin successfully defended Blumberg Excelsior, Inc., a nationwide provider of law and corporate products, in a class-action lawsuit brought against it under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). On behalf of Blumberg, TKD responded to the complaint by immediately bringing a motion to dismiss the entire lawsuit, based upon the unique argument that Blumberg’s violation of the FCRA, if any, could not have been willful. In a well-reasoned decision, the Judge granted the motion, dismissed Blumberg from the lawsuit, and established new precedent for consumer protection practitioners in the Second Circuit and nationwide.
