If you currently or formerly (1) have a Bank of America credit card, (2) enrolled in Bank of America’s eBill AutoPay for your credit card, (3) selected the “Amount Due” payment option between June 4, 2014, and March 7, 2021, and (4) switched your payment option from “Amount Due” to “Account Balance” as of May 21, 2021, after making an “Amount Due” payment and being assessed interest, you may be entitled to benefits from a proposed class action settlement.
A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit pending in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey entitled Jette v. Bank of America, N.A., Case No. 2:20-cv-06791-SDW-LDW (the “Action”). In the Action, Plaintiff alleges that Bank of America, N.A. (hereinafter “BANA”), violated the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act, breached uniform credit card agreements, breached the covenant of good faith and fair dealing, and was unjustly enriched due to its actions in not adequately disclosing that the “Amount Due” payment option offered in connection with BANA's eBill AutoPay for BANA credit cards was the same as paying the “Minimum Amount Due” and would result in payment of only the minimum amount due and not the full amount due, which resulted in customers choosing “Amount Due” when they intended to pay the account balance.
BANA strongly denied all of Plaintiff’s claims; denied all allegations of wrongdoing, fault, liability, or damage of any kind to Plaintiff or the Settlement Class; denied that it acted improperly or wrongfully in any way; and entered into this Settlement to avoid burdensome and costly litigation. The Settlement was not an admission of wrongdoing.
The Settlement resolved the lawsuit. The Court did not decide who was right. Relief will be made available after any appeals are resolved now that Final Approval has been granted by the Court. Please check this website for any updates.
