Haeggquist & Eck, LLP Investigates Claims on Behalf of Investors of Discover Financial Services (NYSE: DFS)

Haeggquist & Eck, LLP, a shareholder and consumer rights litigation firm, is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Discover Financial Services (“Discover” or the “Company”) (NYSE: DFS). Such investors are advised to contact Amber Eck at ambere@haelaw.com or (619) 342-8000.

The investigation concerns whether Discover and certain of its officers and/or directors have violated the securities laws and/or breached their fiduciary duties.

Specifically, on September 29, 2023, Discover announced in its 8-K filed with the SEC that it had entered into a consent order with the FDIC addressing “shortcomings” in the bank’s compliance management system. The FDIC’s examination in 2021 determined Discover engaged in “unsafe or unsound banking practices,” in part by failing to establish a compliance management system to meet consumer protection laws, according to the consent order. The FDIC also found violations of the Federal Trade Commission Act, the Truth-in-Lending Act, the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act and the Electronic Records and Signatures in Commerce Act.

In addition, Discover disclosed on October 26, 2023, in its 10-Q filed with the SEC that it was “cooperating with an SEC investigation into the card product misclassification matter.” Discover admitted that it had “incorrectly classified certain credit card accounts into its highest merchant and merchant acquirer pricing tier” that “affected pricing for certain merchants and merchant acquirers.” Discover has calculated $376 million in liability to provide refunds to merchants for this misclassification.
