Hello,

The options are: (1) join an existing class action; (2) find a lawyer to represent you as an individual; or (3) to represent you as the lead plaintiff in a separate class action.

A lawsuit has already been filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Oregon, on behalf of all possible plaintiffs in the USA. If you have an Equifax credit file (and every adult person in the USA has a file), then you will eventually be notified of your right to opt out of the class action. At that time, you can stay in the class action, or opt out out, and sue on your own or try to find a lawyer to make you lead plaintiff in a separate class action.

I hope I've answered your question. Please let me know if you require further clarification. And, please provide a positive feedback rating for my answer (click 3, 4 or 5 stars) -- otherwise, Justanswer retains your entire payment, and I receive nothing for my efforts in your behalf. Note: If you cannot find the rating button on your webpage, please just type in your rating in a response to this note, and customer service will apply the rating for you.

Thanks again for using Justanswer!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
