In Another Troubling Future-Conduct Settlement, James Grimmelmann evaluates the proposed settlement in Berry v. LexisNexis Risk & Information Analytics Group. The lawsuit involves the sale of Accurint data to help debt collectors, private investigators, and others “Detect fraud. Verify identities. Conduct investigations.” The plaintiffs claimed that Accurint data includes “the kind of personal information that can trigger the Fair Credit Reporting Act, but doesn’t comply with the FCRA’s other requirements. They claimed that LexisNexis doesn’t give consumers access to their files, doesn’t let consumers fix mistakes, and doesn’t require Accurint customers to comply with the FCRA.” Oops. Grimmelmann’s post is highly recommended. — Joe
