Morris v. Gen. Info. Servs. Inc.

Applicants to work at the U.S. Postal Service didn’t have standing to sue the agency for conducting a background check without making a “stand-alone” disclosure required by the Fair Credit Reporting Act. The plaintiffs didn’t allege that they were confused by the extraneous information or that they wouldn’t have consented to the background check had it not been included. Because they didn’t allege that they suffered harms that Congress sought to prevent via the FCRA, they have not alleged an injury-in-fact to support standing. Motion to dismiss granted.

Morris v. Gen. Info. Servs. Inc., No. 3:17cv195, Sept. 25, 2018. EDVA at Richmond (Lauck).
