Spokeo, Inc. v. Robins
The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) requires consumer reporting agencies to follow reasonable procedures to assure maximum possible accuracy of the consumer reports it prepares about individuals. 15 U.S.C. § 1681e(b). This case presents the question whether a consumer alleges an Article III injury-in-fact by alleging that a consumer reporting agency published inaccurate personal information about him in violation of this provision. The government’s briefs at the petition stage and merits stage argue that the invasion of the consumer’s legally protected interest in preventing a consumer reporting agency from publishing inaccurate information about him is an injury-in-fact supporting his standing to sue.
