Updated: The owner of a dog named Charlie who is facing a state-court euthanasia order after reportedly chasing a police horse a mile and a half in a San Francisco park last year has filed suit in federal court to get a restraining order.Although city officials have expressed interest in trying to find a place in an animal sanctuary for Charlie, owner David Gizzarelli says he hesitates to surrender ownership because doesn’t trust city officials to properly oversee the care of his pet, which he describes as a typical family dog, KTVU reports.An independent veterinary behaviorist reportedly has found the American Staffordshire Terrier mix to have a severe predatory behavior issue.

A federal appeals court has revived a lawsuit accusing MasterCard, Visa and three major banks of illegally fixing ATM prices to the detriment of consumers.

The now revived lawsuit would likely still be hindered by an absence of direct evidence of … [Read more...] about Court Revives Antitrust Suit Against MasterCard, Visa, Three Banks
“We don’t take American Express.” You’ve likely heard this before, right? What about “We don’t take Visa.” Never? That sounds about right. Major retailers, if they accept card payments, take Visa and MasterCard, for the most part. These two card-issuing giants pretty much have the market on credit cards cornered - but at what cost? According to Home Depot, the cost was $750 million in transaction fees last year alone. In its recent antitrust suit, Home Depot criticizes Visa and MasterCard’s allegedly exorbitant transaction fees and claims they are gouging the market through unfair competition, unreasonable restraints on trade, and a collusion to put their profits ahead of fraud protection.The fight between mega retailers and card issuers has been brewing for years. Home Depot was just one of many big-name merchants (alongside Wal-Mart, Target, 7-Eleven) who were in litigation with Visa and MasterCard back in 2011 over the … [Read more...] about Did VISA, MasterCard Collude to Put Profits Before Protection?
