Atlanta Hawks FACTA Receipt Settlement Notes
- Moskowitz v. ATL Hawks LLC
- Case No. 2017CV288354
- Pending in the Superior Court of Fulton County, State of Georgia
Plaintiff Craig Moskowitz initiated this class action lawsuit against ATL Hawks LLC, alleging the Hawks violated a federal law known as the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA) by printing on customer receipts the expiration date of customers’ credit card or debit card.
Passed by the United States Congress in 2003, FACTA includes several additional protections for consumers against identity theft. The provision that applies to the Atlanta Hawks FACTA receipt class action lawsuit requires businesses to truncate printed payment card receipts so that the consumer’s full account number and expiration date is not viewable on the sales receipt.
The ATL Hawks disputes the class action allegations and denies that it willfully violated FACTA.
The court granted preliminary approval for the Atlanta Hawks FACTA receipt class action settlement on November 30, 2017
