Court Approves Settlement by Umpqua Bank

A federal judge has approved Umpqua Bank's USD 2.9 million settlement with its customers. The bank had been sued by customers who said that it had charged high overdraft fees. The plaintiffs filed a class action against the bank in December 2011, and a third amended complaint in California's Northern District in January 2014. They claimed that the bank was using special software to maximize the amount of overdraft fees that it charged its customers.

Allegations against the Oregon-Based Bank Include Millions in Fraudulent Transfers

The court-appointed trustee overseeing the bankruptcy of Berjac has sued Umpqua Bank and three other banks, claiming they enabled and prospered off what is alleged to be a long-running Ponzi scheme that cost investors about $40 million. Thomas Huntsberger filed an adversary proceeding seeking at least $50 million in damages from Umpqua, along with Pacific Continental Bank, Century Bank and Summit Bank. The four banks provided the lines of credit that were an essential component to the continuation of the Ponzi scheme. The trustee alleges the banks made fraudulent transfers and is seeking $27.7 million from Umpqua Bank, $22.9 million from Century Bank, $6.3 million from Pacific Continental and $251,906 from Summit. The trustee is also seeking $10 million in punitive damages.
