Given LinkedIn’s business model of members voluntarily posting their own personal employment history, it is hard to believe that there are FCRA violations, so Tracee Sweet et al v. LinkedIn will be an important case to follow. The next step is for the court to agree that the class should be created before the case proceeds, or dismiss the case.

LinkedIn has been a wildly successful social media business site for many years. It provides a free platform for millions of members to share professional experiences and for businesses to promote themselves.

However, LinkedIn’s financial success also makes it a target for lawsuits — even suits that don’t seem to make much sense.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
