EAST ST. LOUIS — A consumer is suing Experian Information Solutions for allegedly failing to note a dispute and modify the information in his file.
William Frederick Petersen filed a complaint on Jan. 31 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois against Experian Information Solutions Inc., alleging the consumer reporting agency violated the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges Experian failed to conduct a reasonable reinvestigation of his dispute and failed to appropriately delete or modify inaccurate information in his file.
As a result of the defendant's alleged unlawful actions and omissions, Petersen claims he suffered damages.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks actual, statutory and punitive damages, an order be issued for the defendant to modify, delete or block the inaccurate information being reported, attorney’s fees and costs, and such other relief as may be just and proper.
