WASHINGTON (Legal Newsline) — A man selected for jury service has filed a class action lawsuit against JP Morgan Chase & Co., alleging that the financial institution's debit cards that were used to pay jurors resulted in unfair fees.
Ronald Morin filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on March 3 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia against JP Morgan Chase & Co. alleging that the financial institution violated the Electronic Fund Transfer Act by paying the plaintiff through Chase cards.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he suffered damages from being misled into agreeing to a debit card payment system. The plaintiff holds JP Morgan Chase & Co. responsible because the defendant allegedly paid the plaintiff's jury duty service through a debit card payment system.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks restitution, statutory and punitive damages, all legal fees, interest, and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Donald Enright of Levi & Korsinsky LLP in Washington.
