BLOOMINGTON, Ind. A popular Bloomington bar is mired in a legal battle that could cost it thousands of dollars for not posting a fees notice on its ATM.
A federal judge has scheduled an October trial on a class-action lawsuit against Nick's English Hut that seeks damages for patrons who used the teller machine before it had a sticker telling of its $1.50 transaction fee.
The Indianapolis Business Journal reports (http://bit.ly/12DIdwk ) that a federal magistrate has ruled the ATM didn't have the sticker when an Indiana University student used it in 2010. That narrows the trial to questions such as Nick's legal liability.
Congress eliminated the notice requirement last year. Nick's co-owner Susan Bright said in a deposition she believed fees disclosure during the transaction was sufficient to meet federal law.
