Gelman v. State Farm Mut. Auto. Ins. Co., No. 07-3665

By FindLaw Staff on October 05, 2009 2:06 PM

District court's dismissal of plaintiff's putative class action against State Farm under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FRCA) is affirmed as plaintiff failed to state a claim for his false pretenses and permissible purpose claims because State Farm's mailer constituted an offer of insurance under the FCRA, and that was a permissible purpose for disclosing plaintiff's credit report.
