IN THE COURT OF COMMON PLEAS FOR LEXINGTON COUNTY STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA
NOTICE OF CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT
IF GENERAL INFORMATION SOLUTIONS LLC, FORMERLY KNOWN AS GENERAL INFORMATION SERVICES, INC., PREPARED A CONSUMER REPORT ABOUT YOU ON OR AFTER JANUARY 19, 2014 AND ON OR BEFORE DECEMBER 31, 2016, YOU MAY BE ENTITLED TO A CASH PAYMENT FROM A CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT.
What is this settlement about?
A settlement has been approved in a class action lawsuit against General Information Solutions LLC (the “Defendant”) on behalf of consumers who on or after January 19, 2014 but on or before December 31, 2016 were the subject of a background check that contained a record other than a conviction of a crime with a disposition date more than seven years before the date of the report.
What are my legal rights and options?
||The Court approved the settlement. If you are a class member and notice was mailed to you, a check in an amount of approximately $148 will be mailed to you.
||You remove yourself from participation in this class action and do not receive a benefit from this settlement. However, you retain any right to file a separate lawsuit against the Defendant. If you choose this option, it is important that you promptly speak to an attorney because of the time-sensitive nature of claims under the Fair Credit Reporting Act. The deadline to exclude yourself from the Settlement has passed.
||You remain a class member, but write to the Court and explain why you don't think the settlement is fair, reasonable, or adequate. The deadline to object to the Settlement has passed.
These rights and options — and the deadlines to exercise them — are explained in the Long Form Notice, available on the Important Documents page, and on the FAQs page of this website.
