Fair Credit Reporting Act lawsuits increased 3.4% in May compared to April but other key categories fell during the month, according to WebRecon, a Grand Rapids, Mich.-based firm that tracks data from U.S. district courts.

Consumer Financial Protection Bureau complaints fell 15.8% in May and Fair Debt Collection Practices Act filings declined 15.4%. Perhaps surprisingly, Telephone Consumer Protection Act filings dropped 8.3% - to 216 from 234 in April. Year-to-date, TCPA filings total 1,118, a 32.1% increase from the same period in 2013.
