On Tuesday, February 7, 2017, Tycko & Zavareei LLP filed a class action lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase alleging that the bank charges D.C. jurors deceptive and unconscionable fees.
D.C. law entitles all jurors to a $4 daily travel stipend, and, if selected to serve on a jury, a $30 daily attendance fee. Rather than receive their payment by check or cash, the lawsuit alleges D.C. jurors are forced to receive their payment on JPMorgan Chase debit cards, in violation of federal law. The lawsuit also alleges violations of state law based on the debit cards being loaded with hidden fees that make it extremely difficult if not impossible for jurors to obtain the full amount of their payments that they are entitled to by statute.
