This case involves a claim by the plaintiff, an attorney appearing pro se, that the Bank violated the Connecticut Unfair Trade Practices Act (“CUTPA”) by issuing a gift card with an expiration date. Plaintiff’s gift card was issued pursuant to a retailer’s gift card program administered by the Bank. The gift card purchased by plaintiff carried a “physical” expiration date of fifteen months but the funds on account never expired. The expiration date was set forth in the Terms and Conditions accompanying the gift card. We argued plaintiff’s claims under CUTPA were pre-empted by the National Bank Act. The court agreed and dismissed plaintiff’s complaint in its entirety.
