HARRISBURG, Pa. — Judge Yvette Kane of the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania denied a motion for discovery by the American Bankers Association and other plaintiffs in its lawsuit against NCUA.

The plaintiffs had requested discovery in the nearly two-year-long battle regarding NCUA’s approval of a community charter for Members 1st Federal Credit Union and subsequent others, because they alleged NCUA’s record was incomplete and biased on the community charter approval. The credit union submitted its initial application for eight counties, which was rejected, then later submitted a draft for a six-county area that NCUA commented on and led Members 1st to the submission of the current community charter being challenged. AmeriChoice FCU, and New Cumberland FCU were also approved for the same community and are named in the suit.
