NEW ORLEANS – A Louisiana woman joined the growing list of serial filers of Electronic Funds Transfer Suit, suing separate three credit unions and one bank Friday in federal court over their alleged failure to disclose fees charged to non-members on the outside of their machines.

The serial plaintiff, who sued T.E.S. Regional Healthcare FCU, Aneca FCU, Willis Knighton FCU and Bank of Ringgold, is represented by Texas lawyer William David Carter, who has sued almost 100 credit unions and banks under the EFTA on behalf of a single plaintiff, Don Anderson.

The new suits come as Congress is expected to make one last try in the upcoming lame duck session to pass legislation that would eliminate the EFTA’s dual requirement for ATM fee disclosures, leaving the single on-screen disclosure as sufficient.
