Oswego Laborers’ Local 214 Pension Fund v. Marine Midland Bank, N.A – Case Brief Summary (New York)

In Oswego Laborers' Local 214 Pension Fund v. Marine Midland Bank, N.A., 85 N.Y.2d 20, 647 N.E.2d 741, 623 N.Y.S.2d 529 (1995), the Court of Appeals held that plaintiffs satisfied the threshold requirement of "consumer-oriented" conduct because the acts of the defendant "potentially affected similarly situated consumers" because the defendant Bank dealt with the two union funds' representative as "any customer entering the bank to open a savings account," "furnished the Funds with standard documents presented to customers upon the opening of accounts," and the account openings were not "unique" to the parties, "private in nature," or a "single shot transaction." (Id. at 26-27.)
