David Schultz Discusses SCOTUS TransUnion v Ramirez Article III Standing Case with ACA International

March 10, 2021

Hinshaw partner David Schultz was recently quoted in an ACA Daily article discussing the TransUnion v. Ramirez case currently before the U.S. Supreme Court. Oral arguments in the case are scheduled for March 30, 2021.

At issue in the Fair Credit Reporting Act case is whether every member of a class action must have Article III standing in order to recover damages. ACA International has filed an amicus brief in the case.

"We recently saw what the 7th Circuit did to Fair Debt Collection Practices Act cases when it applied the Article III standards to the named plaintiffs, dismissing six cases in the past two months,” said Schultz. "If the Supreme Court in Ramirez agrees with TransUnion’s arguments, it could make certifying a class much more difficult, especially in the consumer arena."
