Parker Waichman LLP Takes on the Credit Card Companies, Fights for Smaller Retailers that Form the U.S. Economy’s ‘Backbone’
Date:5/20/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) May 20, 2013

National law firm Parker Waichman LLP and its co-counsels – Duncan Firm P.A. and Thrash Law Firm P.A., both based in Little Rock, Arkansas – have filed an objection to the final approval of the proposed $7.25 billion settlement of a price-fixing case against Visa Inc. and MasterCard Inc. over credit-card transaction fees.

According to Bloomberg, hundreds of objections have been filed – from retailers and merchants both small and large – since U.S. District Judge John Gleeson gave his preliminary sign-off of the settlement agreement in November 2012.

The businesses represented in this objection are a diverse group, the court papers revealed, which includes r
