In re Payment Card Interchange Fee and Merchant Discount Antitrust Litigation

The Challenge

This $6B+ settlement is one of the largest antitrust class action settlements of all time. Epiq received roughly 80 billion rows of data with 163 types of data columns in 180 distinct files.

The Solution

The aggregated data set is over 110 terabytes and is hosted in a PCI-compliant environment. Over a five month period this data was used to generate 21 million settlement notice mailings. This settlement is currently on appeal and therefore the claims process has not yet begun.

The Results

In order to efficiently handle the anticipated claim volume, Epiq has implemented a pre-registration process that allows merchants to provide information to expedite the claims process prior to claim filing.
