OCC Seeks to Dismiss Fintech Charter Lawsuit

The OCC has filed a motion to dismiss in a court case filed by the CSBS suggesting that the agency is not authorized to issue the fintech charter it has been drafting to support the growth of fintech companies in the US; the primary argument of the CSBS centers around the issuance of a national charter to fintech companies offering only unbundled banking services with no deposit taking business; in its motion to dismiss the OCC says the CSBS’ allegations are speculative given that the OCC has not yet begun taking any applications for a national charter.
