Man in the Middle is discussing:

The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 Friday that consumers falsely labeled potential terrorists by a credit reporting agency could not seek damages unless they could prove injury.

May depend on the wording. Merely noting that there is a "John Smith" on the government's terror watch list doesn't seem actionable by itself, in that the info is already public. The harm comes when the credit report implies without further evidence that it is THIS "John Smith" on the government's terror watch list.
