Update on currency conversion fee lawsuit
Not much of substance has happened, but some additional documents (see below) have been filed in the class action lawsuit against credit card companies and banks for hiding their fees foreign-currency credit, debit, and ATM card transactions.
I'm posting the documents here because most parties to the case didn't receive them or most of the previous filings, and they still aren't posted on the Web site for the proposed settlement. I wasn't properly served with these latest filings, but unlike most of the other objectors to the settlement I was sent "courtesy" copies by e-mail, undoubtedly as a result of my prior complaints about lack of notice.
- Cover letters filed 20 May 2009
- Motion for payment of settlement administration fees and expenses, 20 May 2009
- Affidavit related to settlement administration costs and fees, 20 May 2009
- Proposed court order concerning fees and expenses, 20 May 2009
- Certificate of service, 20 May 2009
The proposed settlement remains unfair for the reasons I've discussed previously, and I continue to object to it. So far as I know, no date has been set for a further hearing on the fairness of the settlement or any of the other outstanding issues in the case.
