It is critical to carefully explain to the trier of fact how the reporting system functions, in connection with basic computer database principles, in order to simplify the perceived mysteries of the credit bureaus and insure the apparent double causal link is made. Luster v. Retail Credit Co., 575 F.2d 609 (8th Cir. 1978) [Ark.]. Courts have held that causation was proven when plaintiff presented evidence that inaccuracies led to an existing creditor to discontinue its relationship with plaintiff. Erdman v. White, 411 N.E.2d 653 (Ind. App. 1980).
