The plaintiff in the case, Demeta Reyes (“Plaintiff”), asserts that defendant Experian Information Solutions, Inc. (“Experian”) violated the Fair Credit Reporting Act by preparing consumer credit reports that were inaccurate because they included delinquent loan accounts from Delbert Services, Corp. (“Delbert”), a debt collector for loans originated by Western Sky Financial, LLC (“Western Sky”) after Delbert went out of business and instructed Experian to stop reporting its data.

Under the terms of the settlement, Experian has agreed to establish a $24,000,000.00 fund that will be used to pay class members. You do not need to file a claim or take any additional action in order to receive an automatic payment under this settlement.
