U.S. Supreme Court agrees to hear credit card surcharge fee fight

WASHINGTON, Sept 29 (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday agreed to hear a challenge to a New York state law barring retailers from imposing surcharges on customers who make purchases with a credit card rather than cash.

The court will hear an appeal filed by a group of merchants to a September 2015 ruling by the New York-based 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that upheld the law. Nine other states have similar laws. (Reporting by Lawrence Hurley; Editing by Will Dunham)
