Chilton Corp. v. Moore [Tex. Civ. App.] 508 S.W.2d 679.

Where plaintiff, in state court action, seeking damages allegedly caused by defendant's negligence in gathering and disseminating false credit report on plaintiff, proved that defendant had given plaintiff bad credit rating and that credit information was false, evidence was sufficient to raise issue as to whether defendant, a consumer reporting agency, was guilty of negligence by violating its duty, under 1681e[b], to follow reasonable procedures to assure maximum possible accuracy of information.
