CR joint amicus curiae brief in Zabriskie v. Fannie Mae

SUMMARY: Friend-of-the-court brief, joined by Consumer Reports and others, urging the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to reconsider and reverse its ruling, so that Fannie Mae can be held accountable for erroneously mis-categorizing a borrower’s credit history. In this case, that error resulted in the borrower being erroneously denied a mortgage loan.
