I recently applied for an apartment and I was denied because there was an eviction on my credit report. The eviction is falsely placed on my record. About three years ago my previous landlord tried to evict me from the apartment and had court eviction because I had not paid my rent. However, I had paid my rent and was able to prove it to my landlord and then they decided to dismiss the eviction. Now, can I file a lawsuit against my previous landlord for causing a false eviction to be placed on my credit report?
