The Green Sheets Reports on CardX Oklahoma Victory
“Brooks had consulted with Jonathan Razi, CEO of CardX and a Harvard Law School graduate. Both were gratified by the positive response from Oklahoma’s Department of Justice. A Dec. 17, 2019, letter to Sen. Brooks, signed by Attorney General Mike Hunter and Assistant Solicitor General Bryan Cleveland, affirmed the state surcharge ban restricted commercial free speech.
‘This opinion today gives consumers more choices on how to pay and will also give merchants more flexibility on how they manage their costs,’ Brooks said.
‘This result in Oklahoma solidifies an inevitable payments industry makeover,’ Razi added. ‘Until today, Oklahoma was one of five states where we couldn’t serve businesses, and this decision means that 94 percent of the United States by population is now open to credit card surcharging.’”
