Kalhammer v. First USA Bank
We stopped and improved the proposed First USA Bank consumer class action settlement in Kalhammer, which would have provided rebate certificates to credit cardholders, required no minimum payment from First USA, and kept the total settlement award and attorneys’ fees secret. The revised settlement provided automatic payments to most class members, required First USA to pay a minimum of $6 million, and eliminated the secrecy.
