You are included in the Policy Settlement Class if TURSS reported or reports a Criminal Record and/or Landlord-Tenant Record about you to a third party at any point between November 7, 2016 and the Injunctive Relief Termination Date, which will be two years after the policy changes required by the settlement are implemented.
A Court authorized the Notice to inform you about the proposed Settlement and your rights. Before any final judgment was entered, the Court had a hearing to decide whether to approve the Settlement. The Notice was only a summary of the proposed Settlement. More details about the proposed Settlement, the date when appeals were no longer allowed and the Settlement is final, deadlines for certain actions, and your options are available in a longer document called the Settlement Agreement.
The lawsuit is known as In re: TransUnion Rental Screening Solutions, Inc. FCRA Litigation, No. 1:20-md-02933-JPB. Judge J.P. Boulee of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia is overseeing the case. The people who sued are called “Plaintiffs;” the company that they sued, TransUnion Rental Screening Solutions, Inc. or TURSS, is called the “Defendant."
