Oregon woman wins millions for faulty credit report
An Oregon woman has won millions of dollars after fighting, for years, to have multiple mistakes removed from her credit report.
Julie Miller contacted the credit agency Equifax eight times over two years to fix errors on her credit report. She claimed the company never fixed the problem, so she sued.
A federal jury awarded her $18.6 million in damages, which is the largest judgment awarded to a consumer against one of the major credit bureaus.
The decision will likely be appealed.
