Court applies two-year limitation on Fair Credit Reporting Act claims and summarily dismisses lawsuit

In Rocheleau v. Elder Living Construction, LLC, the plaintiff sought to hold the defendants accountable for disseminating a screening report that cost him his job.  The Plaintiff had applied for a job; his screening report from First Advantage disclosed prior criminal convictions, which were then disclosed to his current employer and he was fired.  He argued that the dissemination of the report violated his rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act.  The Court held that since he did not file his lawsuit within two years of learning of the disclosure, his claim was time-barred.
