This is the settlement website for the class action lawsuit known as White v. Members 1st Federal Credit Union, which was held in the U.S. District Court, Middle District of Pennsylvania.
A $910,000.00 Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit about APPSN Fees (“Overdraft Fees”) charged on certain Point of Sale transactions by Members 1st Federal Credit Union (“Members”) where there was a sufficient available balance at the time the transaction was authorized, but an insufficient available balance at the time the transaction was presented to Members for payment and posted to a member’s account. Members maintains that there was nothing wrong with the transaction processing practices it used and that it complied, at all times, with applicable laws and regulations and the terms of the account agreements with its members.
The Settlement Class was defined as former Members’ members who were charged qualifying Overdraft Fees between March 29, 2015, and January 14, 2019, and who had closed their accounts prior to January 14, 2019. Excluded from the Settlement Class were Members 1st Federal Credit Union, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers and directors, all Settlement Class members who made a timely election to be excluded, and all judges assigned to this litigation and their immediate family members.
