April 12, 2013 by

LexisNexis Risk & Analytics Group Inc. will pay $13.5 million and overhaul its Accurint background-search product to settle a national class action suit.  The suit claims the company sold reports to debt collectors without following consumer-protection laws.  About 31,000 class members reportedly will get a payment from the $13.5 million deal under the proposed settlement.
