HOUSTON – A federal judge has issued a management order in a woman’s lawsuit accusing a car dealership of accessing her credit report without her permission.
U.S. District Judge Lynn N. Hughes signed the order on Dec. 4, setting deadlines for Jacqueline Lieber and Stadium Motorcars to provide essential material for the case.
As previously reported in The Southeast Texas Record, Lieber sued the business for reneging on its promise to explain its incentive program to her without obtaining a copy of her credit history.
The defendant formally responded to the suit last month, according to court records.
Per Hughes’s order, the complainant must divulge to the court and the respondent “whether and by how much her credit score went down” by Dec. 11 while the dealership must give her a blank application, the purported application it received from her, and “all derivative documentation it has” by Dec. 18.
Lieber is also ordered to give Stadium Motorcars documentation, including, but not limited to: “all other credit applications she has done, all other denials she has received, and a list of jobs she has held from Jan. 2015 to the present.
Both parties are given a deadline of Dec. 31 to jointly report on the status of the case.
William T. Green, III of Houston is representing Stadium Motorcars.
