Mealey's (September 9, 2016, 12:55 PM EDT) -- CHICAGO — A customer at stores owned by an Indian tribe cannot pursue class claims that the tribe violated the Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act (FACTA) by printing identifying information on his credit card receipts because Congress did not waive the tribe’s sovereign immunity in the act, the Seventh Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals held Sept. 8 (Jeremy Meyers v. Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin, No. 15-3127, 7th Cir.; 2016 U.S. App. LEXIS 16515).
