MIAMI (Legal Newsline) - A Florida man is suing a hotel management and development company over claims it prints credit and debit card expiration dates on point-of-sale receipts.
Justin Bouton, individually and for all others similarly situated, filed a class action lawsuit April 1 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Ocean Properties LTD, alleging violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).
The suit states Ocean Properties violated a provision of the FCRA by printing credit or debit card's expiration date on receipts provided to the cardholder at the time of sale or transaction. As a result, consumers allegedly were exposed to greater risk of identity theft.
Bouton and others in the class seek a jury trial, statutory and punitive damages, injunctive relief, attorney fees and costs of the suit. They are represented by attorneys Scott D. Owens in Hallandale Beach, Florida and Bret L. Lusskin in Aventura, Florida.
