EXPERIENCE

Representative cases include:

  • Barnes & Thornburg attorneys defended a major credit card issuer in a nationwide antitrust class action arising from the shift from magnetic strip to EMV chip technology in credit cards. Plaintiffs claimed our client conspired with credit card networks and other issuing banks to shift liability for certain fraudulent credit card charges from the issuing banks to merchants accepting Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover credit cards, the so-called October 2015 “liability shift.” Plaintiffs filed a class action complaint in the Northern District of California on behalf of merchants unable to accept EMV chip cards, seeking damages and injunctive relief under federal and state antitrust laws.  The court denied plaintiffs’ request for a preliminary injunction, and our client, along with the credit card networks and the other issuing banks, filed motions to dismiss the complaint. After briefing and oral arguments on the motions, the court permitted plaintiffs to amend their complaint before ruling. Barnes & Thornburg then argued to plaintiffs’ counsel how our client’s facts would not be favorable to their case, and plaintiffs voluntarily dismissed our client from the amended complaint.
  • Obtained judgment after a bench trial on competing claims for breach of a contract, each relating to the rights granted the driver of an IndyLights race car.
