In Hearn v. Comcast Cable Communications, LLC, the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals held that a FCRA claim arising nearly a year after the termination of a subscriber agreement was subject to the arbitration provision included in the terminated subscriber agreement. 2021 WL 1246263 (11th Cir. 2021). Hearn was a Comcast subscriber, subject to a subscriber agreement (the “2016 Subscriber Agreement”) from December 2016 until August 2017, when he terminated the Comcast services.

In connection with his request, Hearn alleged that Comcast initiated a credit inquiry without his permission or knowledge. Hearn filed a putative class action in the Northern District of Georgia alleging violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
