Lewis, et al. v. Green Dot Corporation, et al.Case No. 2:16-cv-03557District Court for the Central District of California
The lawsuit alleges that, due to technical issues occurring during a processor conversion, some holders of Green Dot prepaid debit cards and some holders of Walmart MoneyCards issued by Green Dot experienced a longer-than-anticipated disruption in service for portions of the period of time between May 15, 2016 and May 22, 2016 (the “Service Disruption”). The Defendants in the lawsuit deny that they are or can be held liable for the claims made in the lawsuit. The Settlement does not establish who is correct, but rather is a compromise to end the lawsuit.
