Angela Williams sued Equifax, Inc. on a negligence theory for repeatedly violating federal credit reporting laws by repeatedly confusing her with another person and reporting to others that she was a bad credit risk. Plaintiff claimed the Equifax kept passing along false information about her which ruined her credit. Williams, age 37, claimed that she was denied student loans, credit-card accounts, ATM cards and other financial services and benefits as a direct result of Equifax's sloppy business practices.

The defenses asserted by Equifax are not available.

Outcome: Plaintiff's verdict for $219,000 in actual damages and $2.7 million in punitive damages for negligent violation of federal credit-reporting laws, the Orlando Sentinel reported.
