Here are some news articles - it should be noted that the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear the appeal by VISA and MasterCard, the case has been sent back to U.S. District Court in Brooklyn for more fighting. The case was Visa vs. Wal-Mart, 01-1464 - and to correct some who are MISINFORMED, the plaintiffs in the appeal are VISA and MasterCard.

I agree with the merchants' attorney, Lloyd Constantine, who stated: "The debit- and credit-card cartel has stalled the judicial process every step of the way, squeezing every last penny of their hidden tax on consumers until the day they know is coming -- when the courts order this policy stopped."
