Central District of California Rejects Class Claims...

On November 18, 2020, the United States District Court for the Central District of California (the “Central District”) dismissed the First Amended Complaint of putative class representatives asserting a FCRA claim against Experian in connection with a data breach in October 2017. Tailford v. Experian Info. Sols., 2020 WL 6867157 (C.D. Cal. Nov. 18, 2020). This was not the first case filed by the Plaintiffs and not the first time their class action claims have been dismissed.

On October 6, 2017, a data breach of Experian’s October 2013 ConsumerView database file was discovered that was purportedly caused by data analytics company Alteryx, Inc. The data allegedly contained “thousands of attributes on more than 300 million consumers and 126 million households including age, gender, marital status, the presence of children, homeowner status, education and occupation” as well as Behavioral Data such as purchase history and household income. Tailford, 2020 WL 6867157, *1. In response to this breach, the Plaintiffs requested from Experian a disclosure of the information Experian maintained on them, pursuant to FCRA Section 1681g(a).
