Last week, U.S. District Judge Joseph R. Goodwin certified a nationwide class action brought by Lyngklip & Associates, along with three other law firms. The class consists of consumers for whom Quicken Loans, Inc. failed to timely provide required notices under the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Lyngklip & Associates alleged that the FCRA required Quicken to provide a copy of the credit scores used by Quicken Loans along with a notice of the consumers’ rights, and required that Quicken do so “as soon as reasonably practicable.” The class complaint alleged that Quicken Loans improperly delayed sending these notices.

The certification of the matter as a class is the first step towards resolving the matter for more than 300,000 potential Quicken Loans customers. The ruling does not resolve merits of the claims, but does clear the way for a class-wide adjudication. Lyngklip & Associates has requested that the Court award statutory, actual, and punitive damages for each of the class members.
