Consumer Class-Action: Complete Dismissal
Plaintiffs filed a nationwide class-action alleging that the client violated the Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act (“FACTA”) by printing credit card expiration dates on millions of customer receipts for online transactions. The potential damages exceeded $1 billion. Drafted a motion to dismiss based on a creative interpretation of the statute while simultaneously participating in a joint Congressional lobbying effort to amend FACTA to exempt online transactions. The lobbying was successful, and resulted in a amendment that provided retroactive protection to the client, resulting in a complete defense victory.
