IN THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE SEVENTH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT
IN AND FOR VOLUSIA COUNTY, FLORIDA
DEONTE BROADY, on behalf of himself and
WASTE PRO USA, INC.,
|CASE NO.: 2022 11719 CIDL
NOTICE OF PROPOSED CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT AND HEARING
A court authorized this Notice. This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.
This notice relates to a proposed settlement in a class action lawsuit which alleges that Defendant Waste Pro USA, Inc. violated the Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRA”). Plaintiff Deonte Broady (“Plaintiff”) alleged that Defendant violated the FCRA by inserting extraneous information into forms authorizing the procurement and use of consumer report information in background checks for employment purposes, by not by providing him with the required pre-adverse notice to applicants prior to taking adverse action against them, and by obtaining consumer reports without the proper authorization. Defendant denies that it violated the law in any way whatsoever. The two sides disagree as to whether Defendant’s conduct was permitted under the FCRA, whether Defendant would be liable under the FCRA with respect to that conduct and, if so, the extent of any such liability. The parties have, however, agreed to resolve the lawsuit through a Court-supervised settlement.
• Membership in the settlement class will be determined based upon Defendant’s records.
• You are receiving this notice because Defendant’s records indicate that you are a Class Member, so you are eligible to participate in this class action settlement.
