Case History: The United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York has preliminary approved a proposed settlement of a maximum
of approximately $6.24 billion and a minimum of at least $5.54 billion in a class action lawsuit, called In re Payment Card Interchange Fee and
Merchant Discount Antitrust Litigation, MDL 1720 (MKB) (JO). The lawsuit is about claims that merchants paid excessive fees to accept Visa and
Mastercard cards because Visa and Mastercard, individually, and together with their respective member banks, violated the antitrust laws.
