RentGrow won a victory in the Seventh Circuit on definition of “conviction”.  Adalco v. RentGrow, No. 18-1932 (7th Cir. 2019).  The court found that the definition of “conviction” under the FCRA should be interpreted under federal law, not the law of the state where the criminal record is generated. The appellate court affirmed the holding that a guilty plea resulting in a sentence of supervision qualified as a “conviction” under federal law, including the FCRA.  As noted in a Troutman Sanders blog, the case “reinforces the requirement that an FCRA plaintiff has actually suffered damages tied to the alleged violation in the case.”
