The 2011 suit by First Premier Bank challenging certain credit card fee rules issued by the Federal Reserve under TILA and the Credit Card Act has been dismissed upon agreement by First Premier and the CFPB. In its complaint, First Premier argued that the rules, which attempted to regulate fees paid prior to the opening of a credit card account, exceeded the Federal Reserve’s statutory authority to regulate fees paid “in the first year during which the account is opened.” 15 U.S.C. § 1637(n); 5 U.S.C. § 706(2)(A) & (C). In July 2011, the CFPB assumed the rule making authority under TILA from the Federal Reserve and became the plaintiff in the matter. The Court enjoined the rules from taking effect and, inFebruary 2012, the CFPB advised the court that it was preparing to amended the rules so that they did not apply to fees paid prior to an “account opening.” In the amendment, which became effective on March 28, 2013, the CFPB acknowledges that the change was “necessary to resolve the uncertainty created by the South Dakota litigation.”
