    Answered . Unfortunately, there is no motion, per se, which is available to you in this case. Card issuers are required by law to report that an item is disputed, until the dispute is resolved. If the item is being reported in error, and you do not receive a favorable response to your dispute, you may have an available action under one or more of the laws which control credit reporting and debt collection.

    Answered . There is no motion to quash through the courts, as a tool for disputing items on your credit report. That being said, you can explore possible FCRA (Fair Credit Report Act) violations, if the item is being reported inappropriately. Use can contact the local bar association or use the Avvo Find a Lawyer tool for referrals.
