You are a member of the Settlement Class and are affected by the settlement if the Defendant provided a background check about you directly to an end-user that contained a record that was something other than a conviction of a crime and the disposition of that record occurred more than seven years before the date of the report.
Specifically, for the purposes of settlement only, the Court has provisionally certified a “Settlement Class” defined as follows:
All natural persons residing in the United States or the District of Columbia who were the subject of one or more consumer reports that GIS prepared and furnished directly to an end-user during the period from January 19, 2014 to December 31, 2016, which report or reports contained one or more records in the “Criminal History” section of the report where the disposition in the incident (a) is something other than a conviction of a crime; and (b) antedates the date of the report by more than seven years. Excluded from the Settlement Class are any Released Party, any consumer who has previously released his or her claims against GIS, any person who validly opts out of the settlement pursuant to Subsection 6.1.1, and the Judge overseeing the Litigation.
If you fall within the foregoing Settlement Class definition, you will be a Settlement Class Member unless you excluded yourself from the Settlement Class.
