Carlton Fields Shareholder Aaron Weiss was quoted in a Law360 article, “Justices Grapple With Harm Line in FCRA Class Standing Row,” regarding a recent Supreme Court oral argument that asked how to apply Article III standing requirements to absent class members.

Weiss opined that the arguments "made one thing clear: this is indeed a complicated case."

"Justice Kavanaugh's discussion of likely standing for at least the approximately 1,800 class members whose credit reports were actually disseminated and Justice Sotomayor's discussion of ... [how] Mr. Ramirez's unusually unfortunate circumstances at trial were the product of a strategic decision by counsel with respect to evidentiary objections (or lack thereof) were areas the Court could potentially look to if they choose to find a narrow consensus opinion," said Weiss.
