On Aug 16, 2018, Judge Vince Chhabria signed an Order Granting Final Approval of Class Action Settlement in a Case of Pastor v. Bank Of America.

Mr. Pastor, represented by Hyde and Swigart and Kazerouni Law Group, brought a class action on behalf of more than half a million former customers of Bank of America over alleged Fair Credit Reporting Act violations stemming from unauthorized soft credit report inquiries.

“After 3 years of litigation, the Court granted final approval of our Class Action. It is a big win for the class members and I hope that it will create a positive change in the banking industry and affect how banks deal with their customers.” – said Joshua Swigart, a co-counsel on this case.
