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

By FindLaw Staff on October 05, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

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.
