9th Circuit dismisses ATM fee suit

Court says plaintiffs had no standing to sue

The 9th Circuit tossed out a lawsuit that claimed several banks illegally conspired to fix the fees that they charge non-bank customers for ATM withdrawals.

According to the suit, the banks colluded to set the fees they charge one another, not bank customers, for foreign ATM transactions. The court, which ruled on the case yesterday, said the customers who filed the complaint don’t directly pay the fees at issue, therefore, they have no standing to sue.
