PHILADELPHIA — Tenants have filed a class action lawsuit against RealPage Inc., doing business as On-Site, a consumer reporting agency, alleging a violation of the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
Patricia McIntyre filed a complaint on behalf of herself and all others similarly situated on Sept. 12, in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, against RealPage Inc., alleging that the consumer reporting agency breached its duty of good faith and fair dealings.
The plaintiffs allege that she and other individuals seeking to lease a property have suffered injuries to their credit reputation, and were forced to live in expensive extended-stay housing, because of the inaccurate and outdated tenant screening report submitted by the defendant about plaintiff and the class.
The plaintiffs hold RealPage Inc. responsible, because the defendant allegedly failed to follow procedures to assure the maximum possible accuracy of the information contained in the consumer report and failed to provide all of the information it maintains about consumers upon request.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against defendant, certify class action, actual, statutory, and punitive damages, costs, attorney's fees, and further relief as may be just and proper.
They are represented by James A. Francis, John Soumilas and Lauren KW Brennan of Francis & Mailman PC in Philadelphia.
