Evantash v. GE Capital Mortgage Services Inc.
2003 WL 22844198 (E.D. Pa. 2003)
Although our client's husband filed for bankruptcy, our client did not. But the credit bureaus reported on her credit report that she had an "account included in bankruptcy", damaging her credit. The mortgage company and credit bureau refused to correct it, and we sued on her behalf. The federal court sitting in Philadelphia agreed that the reporting was not sufficiently accurate to satisfy the federal credit reporting laws.
