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

United States Supreme Court
397 U.S. 150 (1970)



The, Association of Data Processing Service Organizations, Inc. (ADAPSO) (plaintiff), a trade organization of data processing services companies, brought suit in a United States district court to challenge a ruling by the Comptroller of the Currency holding that national banks could enter the data processing business. Section 4 of the Bank Services Corporation Act of 1962 provides that “no bank service corporation may engage in any activity other than the performance of bank services for banks.” ADAPSO alleged that it had standing to challenge the ruling because a national bank had started or had prepared to start performing data processing services previously performed by one of ADAPSO’s members. The district court held ADAPSO did not have standing and the court of appeals affirmed. The Supreme Court granted certiorari.
