Data Processing Svc. Orgs. v. Camp, 397 U.S. 150 (1970)

Association of Data Processing Service Organizations, Inc. v. Camp

No. 85

Argued November 18, 1969

Decided March 3, 1970

397 U.S. 150

Syllabus

Petitioners, which provide data processing services to businesses generally, challenge a ruling by the Comptroller of the Currency permitting national banks, such as respondent bank, as an incident to their banking services, to make data processing services available to other banks and bank customers. The District Court dismissed the complaint, holding that petitioners lacked standing to bring the suit, and the Court of Appeals affirmed.

Held:

1. Petitioners have standing to maintain the action. Pp. 397 U. S. 151-156, 157.

(a) Petitioners satisfy the "case" or "controversy" test of Article III of the Constitution, as they allege that the banks' competition causes them economic injury. Pp. 397 U. S. 152-153.

(b) The interest sought to be protected by petitioners is arguably within the one of interests to be protected or regulated by the statute, and petitioners are "aggrieved" persons under § 702 of the Administrative Procedure Act. Pp. 397 U. S. 153-156, 397 U. S. 157.

2. Congress did not preclude judicial review of the Comptrollers rulings as to the scope of activities statutorily available to national banks. Pp. 397 U. S. 156-157.

406 F.2d 37, reversed and remanded.
