Postby David A. Szwak » Thu Oct 27, 2005 7:53 pm

The court in Barron v. Trans Union Corp., 82 F.Supp.2d 1288, 1293-1294 [U.S.D.C. M.D. Ala. 2000], stated:

“Under the FCRA, "an action to enforce any liability...may be brought...within two years from the date on which the liability arises...." 15 U.S.C. §1681p. Under 15 U.S.C. §1681e[b], liability arises when the consumer reporting agency issues an inaccurate consumer report. See Wilson v. Porter, Wright, Morris & Arthur, 921 F.Supp. 758, 759-60 [S.D. Fla. 1995]; see also Hyde v. Hibernia National Bank in Jefferson Parish, 861 F.2d 446, 450 [5th Cir. 1988] [holding that "each transmission of the same credit report is a separate and distinct tort to which a separate statute of limitation applies"]. Under 15 U.S.C. §1681i, liability arises when the consumer reporting agency "allegedly violate[s] its duty under the FCRA to reinvestigate." Williams v. Colonial Bank, 826 F.Supp. 415, 419 [M.D. Ala. 1993], affirmed, 29 F.3d 641 [11th Cir. 1994].”
