Swipe fee victory

Last week, the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit rejected the multi-billion-dollar settlement that was reached between retailers and Visa and MasterCard.  The court ruled that the settlement was “unreasonable and inadequate” and sent the case back for further litigation.  As a reminder, this is the case that many PRLA members have been contacted about in terms of signing a contract with some companies to receive this settlement.  There is still NO settlement and any group that contacts you saying that there is, is misleading you.
