    State of Mississippi Suing Experian

    Credit reporting giant Experian is being sued by the state of Mississippi, alleging widespread errors in the company's data and constant violations of consumer protection laws. Mississippi's along with other unreported multi-state investigation of credit bureaus spearheaded by Ohio indicate a substantial new legal challenge to the credit bureaus.

    It does put an unnecessary burden in consumers when they report errors time and time again.

    The lawsuits do help though - during the time that a bureau is undergoing investigation or lawsuit they will be much more likely to respond to disputes to correct data or remove inaccuracies. Much more likely than they are when NOT being sued. It's unfortunate, but can be used to the consumer's advantage.

    Now is a GREAT time to resolve anything you need to resolve with Experian.

    How is this turning out? Did someone give in to their demands, in essence settle.

    Why not another lawsuit? Everyone and companies alike enjoy litigation in pursuit of money. Now a state can sue too.

    This is pretty normal for a state to sue a corporation. The corporation went and did something illegal and quite possibly the people didn't have the financial resources to sue them. It keeps companies in check from engaging in illegal activity.

    So, did this lawsuit ever go anywhere?
