Wright-Patt Credit Union Building

Entities that handle retirement plans have a fiduciary duty to the plan and its participants.

Kadlec Regional Medical Center Building

The complaint for this class action alleges that the Kadlec Regional Medical Center’s emergency room charges a “cover charge”—a fee in addition to the itemized fees—for being seen at the center’s emergency room. The fee is not disclosed to patients at the time of their treatment and the complaint claims that this is “a substantial factor in an emergency care patient’s decision to remain at the hospital and proceed with treatment.”

(BMS), among others, charged excessive fees that were not appropriate for the level of services provided.

More and more complaints are questioning the practices of banks in charging customers fees for ATM use and overdrafts.
