  1. What if someone had dual citizenship and is affected in both countries?

    • Yikes. So double the worry/stress/risk? Of course, some of our courts don’t view increased statistical risk as conferring standing to sue, but I’m guessing Equifax is going to be settling suits left and right rather than try to fight some of these too vigorously, as the public is already ticked off and if they try to claim that they are not liable/responsible, the public may explode altogether.
