The Court in this case has approved the posting of the Notice on this website so that it could be viewed by Class Members. The Notice is located here.
The Class Members are:
all natural persons upon whom Defendant produced a report which included records older than seven years, which included the following terms in the “charge type” field: “infraction,” “ordinance,” “violation,” “petty offense,” “traffic,” “citation,” and “civil,” from July 28, 2015 to March 20, 2018.
Class membership is determined on the basis of Checkr’s records. If you are unsure of whether you are a Class Member, you can contact the Settlement Administrator at 1-833-747-6674.
The Notice has been posted because Class Members have a right to know about a proposed settlement of a lawsuit in which they are class members, and about all their options, before the Court decides whether to approve the settlement. If the Court approves the settlement, and after objections or appeals relating to that settlement are resolved, the benefits provided for by the settlement will be available to members of the Settlement Class.
If you are a Class Member, you should have received an e-mail and/or postcard mailing informing you whether you are a member of the Class Members Entitled to Autopay or if you are a member who is required to submit a Claim Form before receiving payment.
You are one of the Class Members Entitled to Autopay if you are an individual (1) upon whom Defendant produced a consumer report between July 28, 2015 and March 20, 2018; and (2) the report included a North Carolina, Florida, or Virginia record of an “infraction” older than seven years from the date of the report; and/or (3) the report included infraction or other qualifying low-level offense records older than seven years from the date of the report, you disputed information the report, and the dispute resulted in a change to the entries on the report which were more than seven years old. As explained in paragraph 5 below, if you are within this group, you need not submit a Claim Form to receive a payment.
If you are not in this group, you need to submit a Claim Form to receive a payment. If you are not sure whether you need to submit a claim form or not, you may contact the Settlement Administrator.
The Notice explains the lawsuit, the settlement, your legal rights, what benefits are available, who is eligible for them, and how to get them. A full copy of the Settlement Agreement may be reviewed here.
