On April 26, 2012, U.S. District Judge James Lawrence King of the Southern District of Florida granted preliminary approval to a $35 million settlement. Read the Court's order.
The settlement applies to
"All Union Bank customers in the United States who had one or more consumer accounts and who, between July 16, 2005 and August 13, 2010, incurred an Overdraft Fee as a result of Union Bank's Debit Re-sequencing."
On September 13, 2012, the Court granted final approval to the settlement. In approving the settlement, Judge King complimented plaintiffs' counsel for their outstanding work and effort in resolving the case:
"The description of plaintiffs' counsel, which is a necessary part of the settlement, is, if anything, understated. In my observation of the diligence and professional activity, it's superb. I know of no other class action case anywhere in the country in the last couple of decades that's been handled as efficiently as this one has, which is a tribute to the lawyers."
