A proposed class action settlement has been reached in Reyes v. Zions First National Bank, Case No. 10-cv-0345, pending in federal court in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. The Plaintiff alleged that between October 2006 and March 2010, Zions First National Bank, NetDeposit, LLC, MP Technologies d/b/a Modern Payments and Teledraft, Inc., violated federal law by initiating debits on consumers' accounts on behalf of allegedly fraudulent entities.
