    (Anthony) Robinson contended that fraudulent student loans had been taken out in his name, and that the DOE had not properly investigated his claims. The district court dismissed Robinson’s lawsuit against the DOE, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit upheld that dismissal. It ruled that provisions in the FCRA that allow consumers to sue any “person” who violates the FCRA did not clearly waive the federal government’s immunity from suit, even though the definition of “person” includes “any … government or governmental subdivision or agency.” Robinson appealed to the Supreme Court, which today denied his petition.
