Kamal v. J. Crew — civil — reversal — Scirica
A federal statute bars retailers from printing more than the last five digits of credit card numbers on receipts. A J. Crew consumer discovered that his receipts included the first six numbers of his credit card, so he sued. The district court dismissed with prejudice for lack of standing due to lack of concrete injury. The Third Circuit affirmed the dismissal under Spokeo and its progeny, joining the majority in a circuit split, but held that it was error to dismiss with prejudice because the district court lacked jurisdiction.
Joining Scirica were Chagares and Rendell. Arguing counsel were Marvin Frank of New York for the consumer and Andrew Bunn, formerly of DLA Piper, for J. Crew.
