This is the complaint in a class action suit brought by Doris Menefee against Choicepoint, Inc., a private background check company that falls under FCRA. Ms. Menefee states that Choicepoint, Inc. (along with her former employer, RiteAid) incorrectly states on background checks that she committed theft.

After Ms. Menefee initiated a dispute with ChoicePoint, pursuant to her rights under FCRA, ChoicePoint and Rite Aid failed to reinvestigate the accuracy of the theft report and left the report intact, in reckless disregard of the truth and of her rights and interests, according to the complaint.
Ms. Menefee is seeking to represent a class of similarly situated current, former, or future retail workers who have been or who risk being branded as "thieves" by ChoicePoint.
