A woman who won nearly $19 million in a lawsuit against Equifax over credit report mistakes saw the jury award cut to less than $2 million by a federal judge in Portland.
A former high-ranking CIA employee now serving a 23-year sentence for conspiracy to commit espionage pleaded guilty Monday in federal court in Portland, Ore., to new charges of conspiring to act as an agent of Russia and international money laundering, the Justice Department said.
"The court concludes Equifax engaged in reprehensible conduct that caused real harm to Miller," Brown wrote. "The amount of the punitive-damages award, although within constitutional limits, nevertheless, should be enough to deter Equifax and others similarly situated from repeating this type of conduct in the future."
Judge Anna J. Brown said Wednesday that she reduced the punitive damages to bring the amount more in line with the $180,000 in compensatory damages.
