Case Information

Dougherty v. QuickSIUS LLC d/b/a Quick Search, Case No. 2:15-cv-06422-JHS District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania

Case Description

The Named Plaintiff alleged that Quick Search violated the Fair Credit Reporting Act by furnishing background reports without following reasonable procedures to ensure that the information in the reports was accurate. Class Members are people who were either identified as having a Pennsylvania Summary Offense labeled as a misdemeanor or a more severe offense in their report, and/or people who had the same offense reported in more than one section of a Quick Search report. As part of the settlement, Quick Search has agreed to pay Settlement Class Members money.

Quick Search has denied all claims in the lawsuit, has disputed that it has any liability, and contends that it acted lawfully and in compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act at all times.

Quick Search and the Named Plaintiff (the “Parties”) are settling the litigation to avoid the burden, risk, expense, and uncertainty of further litigation.

Although the Court has authorized notice to be given of the proposed settlement, the Notice does not express the opinion of the Court on the merits of the claims or defenses asserted by either side in the litigation. No court has found Quick Search to have violated the law in any way. No court has found that the Named Plaintiff could recover any certain amount in this litigation.
