In Briggs v. Wells Fargo, plaintiff alleged that defendant violated the FCRA by failing to correct or investigate numerous allegedly false statements made to the credit reporting agencies.  Defendant move to dismiss, arguing it was not required to respond to or investigate plaintiff's disputes.  The court granted the motion, fining that plaintiff failed to allege, and there was no facts showing, that plaintiff had disputed the reporting with the credit bureaus, or that defendant received notice of the dispute from the bureaus, which is necessary to trigger a duty to re-investigate.
