The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit has rejected a class-action agreement that it said involves a conflict of interest. Plaintiffs in the case had said that credit-reporting agencies failed to delete certain debts from their credit reports after bankruptcy. The court threw the agreement out because named plaintiffs had to support the settlement, worth a total of $45 million, to get incentive awards of as much as $5,000 each.
