ST. PAUL, Minn., April 30, 2020 – Plaintiff’s law firm Johnson // Becker currently represents Jonathan Edwards in a proposed class action lawsuit against Citizens Bank & Trust Co. of Hutchinson, Minnesota. The lawsuit, filed on April 29, 2020, alleges that Citizens Bank & Trust Co. entered into an agreement with Edwards and all other Citizens Bank & Trust Co. checking account customers whereby Citizens Bank & Trust Co. agreed to charge its checking account customers one returned item or overdraft fee for each transaction in which its customers attempted to make a purchase using their checking account, but were denied for lack of funds.
