This settlement was made after the plaintiffs filed their complaint with the bank. It is important to note that the lawsuit does not apply to the overdraft fee.

But in the end, U.S. District Judge M. James Lorenz sided with the plaintiffs and awarded them $75 million. This case is still ongoing, but the company has agreed to settle a portion of it. If the plaintiffs win, the lawsuit will be filed in the Southern District of New York.
