I am only disheartened that the response of Equifax was so very blase and blatantly in disregard of the plaintiff's injuries. The reduction in emotional damages was unfortunate, but not unforeseen, and I am grateful for the court's recognition that ID theft is not one injury, but many -- especially under egregious "CRA mishandling" facts such as these.


It's about time to hear some good news like this. With identity theft being the fastest growing crime in the US, more lawsuits like this might occur. Unless equifax and the other bureaus open their eyes and give people a fair chance.
