On October 20, 2014, the Court approved a distribution of checks concerning foreign transaction fee claims made in connection with the settlements in the two related matters In re Currency Conversion Fee Antitrust Litig.
and Ross, et al. v. American Express Co., et al
. This is the third-and Plaintiffs' Co-Lead Counsel anticipate final-distribution of settlement funds. (The initial distribution of checks in connection with the Currency Conversion Fee
settlement was completed by mid-January 2012, and a second distribution was completed by July 2013.)
The Settlement Administrator will be issuing distribution checks to Authorized Claimants on or before December 4, 2014. Eligible Authorized Claimants for this distribution are those claimants whose claims were reduced by the largest percentage amount under the reduction methodologies used for the prior two distributions (due to the aggregate value of all claims exceeding the amount of available settlement funds). Please see the Frequently Asked Questions
for information on the distribution checks.
You should note that distribution checks will be void after 90 days from the date on the check. If you receive a settlement check, please promptly deposit it before the check's 90-day expiration date.
