Former GMLR Research Editor Meredith Schramm-Strosser Cited in Federal Court

Former George Mason Law Review Research Editor Meredith Schramm-Strosser’s scholarly examination of the preemptive effects of the Fair Credit Reporting Act is earning notice in the federal courts.

Judge Messitte of the U.S. District Court in Maryland cited Schramm-Strosser’s student comment in an August 2013 opinion, Davenport v. Sallie Mae, Inc., Civil No. PJM 12-1475, 2013 WL 4010983 (D. Md. Aug. 2, 2013). Separately, a petitioner in a New Jersey case cited the comment in both a cert petition and a reply brief submitted to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Schramm-Strosser (’12) served as a Law Review research editor in 2011-2012. Her comment, entitled “The ‘Not So’ Fair Credit Reporting Act: Federal Preemption, Injunctive Relief, and the Need to Return Remedies for Common Law Defamation to the States,” was published in the Duquesne Business Law Journal in 2012. She currently works in the Labor and Employment practice group at the firm of Joseph, Greenwald & Laake, P.A. representing both employees and employers in a wide range of employment disputes and federal/state whistleblower actions.
