"Statutory damages are in effect bounties-means of inducing private persons to enforce a regulatory law. Redman v. RadioShack Corp., 768 F.3d 622 (7th Cir. 2014).
That particular cite doesn't raise the issue of an injury-in-fact, does it? You should have cited what came before.
"If a violation of the statute is willful, a consumer whose receipt contains as a result of the violation data that should have been deleted, but who sustains no harm
because no one stole his identity as a result of the violation, is nevertheless entitled to "statutory damages,"
as distinct from compensatory or punitive damages, of between $100 and $1000. 15 U.S.C. § 1681n(a)(1)(A)."
As is evident, Redman
was decided before Spokeo
. The purpose of Spokeo
was to determine if Congress has the right to confer standing so courts' reactions to Spokeo remains to be seen.
