Justin Baxter will discuss litigation strategies, trial practice, and themes that resulted in an $18.5 million jury verdict against Equifax for violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Beginning in 2009, Equifax merged Julie Miller's credit file with that of another person with a different Social Security number, birthdate and address. Ms. Miller disputed the account repeatedly, but Equifax failed to perform any reinvestigations. The case was tried in federal district court in Oregon in July of 2013.
