The Ninth Circuit recognized that plaintiff’s argument was novel but was thwarted by the statute itself.  Plaintiff below, argued on behalf of a class, that the company violated the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) by presenting the FCRA disclosure at the same time the company presented other separate documents.  The District Court granted summary judgment and the Ninth Circuit affirmed. Luna v. Hansen and Adkins Auto Transport, Inc., No. 18-55804 (9th Cir. Apr. 24, 2020).
