Issues: (1) Whether an “informational injury” satisfies the article III standing requirement of real-world harm articulated in Spokeo v. Robins, where the plaintiff alleges at most a bare procedural violation of the Fair Credit Reporting Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1681b; and (2) whether a bare procedural violation of a statute may be deemed “willful”—i.e. knowing and reckless—under Safeco Insurance Company of America v. Burr, where no risk of harm resulted from the alleged violation.
