In 1990, Greg Henson sold his 1980 Chevrolet Camaro Z-28 to his brother, Jeff Henson. To purchase


In 1990, Greg Henson sold his 1980 Chevrolet Camaro Z-28 to his brother, Jeff Henson. To purchase the car, Jeff secured a loan with Cosco Federal Credit Union (Cosco). Soon thereafter, the car was stolen and Jeff stopped making payments on his loan from Cosco.
At the time, Cosco was unsure whether Greg retained an interest in the car, so Cosco sued both Jeff and Greg for possession of the car.

Two credit agencies, CSC Credit Services (CSC) and Trans Union Corporation (TransUnion), relied on the state court judgment docket and indicated in Greg's credit report that he owed the money judgment. Greg and his wife, Mary Henson, allege that they then "contacted Trans [Union] twice, in writing, to correct this horrible injustice." When TransUnion did not respond, the Hensons brought this action alleging violations of the Federal Credit Reporting Act. The district court, noting that to state a claim under FCRA a consumer must allege that a credit reporting agency prepared a credit report containing inaccurate information, granted the defendants' motions to dismiss.
