Credit or debit card class action settlement

About this lawsuit

The Plaintiffs in this lawsuit allege that Defendant Hennepin County wrongfully printed the expiration date of credit and debit card numbers on customer receipts in violation of the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA). Hennepin County believes that no one is at increased risk of identity theft by the disclosure of an expiration date on a Hennepin County Service Center credit card receipt. However, Hennepin County recognizes one of the purposes of FACTA is to prevent identity theft and mandates deletion of certain credit card information appearing on customer receipts. Hennepin County agrees to this settlement because of the costs and risks of class action litigation. Hennepin County made efforts to reprogram its cashiering software immediately upon learning of this lawsuit.
