Chipotle Workers Argue Against Supreme Court Review of Wage and Hour Lawsuit

Navy Federal to Settle Overdraft Fees Lawsuit for $16 Million
Alexandria, VA  The Eastern District of Virginia appears poised to approve a proposed settlement in a class action bank overdraft fees lawsuit originally filed against Navy Federal Credit Union in 2019. Under the terms of the proposed settlement, checking account customers at Navy Federal who were overcharged will have a common fund of $16 million to divide among themselves. The settlement is notable because class members need not file claims to receive compensation. The settlement fund will be automatically allocated among them according to a distribution plan set out in the agreement.

It’s not over yet; the Third Circuit remanded the lawsuit back to the District Court for further proceedings.
