Case History

In December of 2012, a team of attorneys at Kohn, Swift & Graf, P.C. representing Plaintiff Daryoush Taha, filed a class action on behalf of himself and all Bucks County Prison inmates whose criminal history records had been published on the Bucks County Correctional Facility’s open website as well as on behalf of Pennsylvania citizens whose criminal history records were published on the websites of Defendants’ Unpublish LLC and CIA.

The class action complaint alleged that County Defendants released data from Plaintiff’s expunged arrest record to their publicly available electronic search tool in direct violation of the Pennsylvania Criminal History Record Information Act (“CHRIA”). In addition, Defendants Unpublish LLC and CIA unlawfully obtained and then posted details of Plaintiff’s expunged arrest record on their websites. Defendants profited from this unlawful act by collecting advertising revenue and charging individuals fees to remove their criminal arrest information.
