Class action lawsuit under the FCRA for displaying plaintiffs' credit card information on government website

Bormes v. US, 09-1546, concerned an attorney's class action lawsuit against the government on behalf of his clients under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) claiming that the display of his and similarly situated plaintiffs' credit card information when paying court filing fees online violated section 1681c(g)(1) of the FCRA.  In vacating the district court's dismissal of the suit and remanding the matter, the court held that, FCRA is a money-mandating statute that supports jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C. section 1346(a)(2).
