Executive Summary: The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in Smith v. LexisNexis Screen Solutions, Inc., __ F. 3d ___, 2016 WL 4761325 (6th Cir. September 13, 2016), recently upheld a jury verdict in favor of a plaintiff in a Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) case, who was initially denied a job due to an error made by LexisNexis Screen Solutions, Inc.
