The Supreme Court granted certiorari to review a Ninth Circuit decision concerning standing to bring a claim under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (15 U.S.C. § 1681 et seq.)(“FCRA”).  In Robins v. Spokeo, Inc., 742 F.3d 409 (9th Cir. 2014), cert. granted sub nom. Spokeo, Inc. v. Robins, 135 S. Ct. 1892 (U.S. Apr. 27, 2015) (No. 13-1339), a plaintiff alleged that a website operator violated the FCRA by publishing inaccurate information about him, which plaintiff claimed harmed his employment prospects.  The district court in California dismissed the action, ruling that plaintiff lacked standing to sue because he had failed to plead an injury in fact and that any injuries were traceable to defendant’s alleged violations.  The Ninth Circuit reversed.  The court noted that the FCRA does not require a showing of actual harm where, as here, a plaintiff sues for willful violations.  Thus, plaintiff’s alleged violations of his statutory rights were sufficient to satisfy the injury-in-fact requirement of Article III standing.  The court further concluded that, where the injury in fact is the violation of a statutory right, the causation and redressability requirements for standing are also satisfied.
