BUFFALO, N.Y. – Three more credit unions were sued in federal court Friday by a New York patent holder that claims they are infringing on patents relating to their processing of transactions through their ATMs, the latest in a growing list of credit unions targeted by patent claims.

The new claims were filed by Automated Transactions LLC against Buffalo Service CU, Buffalo Community FCU and Erie Metro FCU. The suits follow similar infringement claims filed in December against New England FCU and Heritage Family CU. Automated Transactions also has sued more than two dozen banks over the past two years.
