Item 8.01 Other Events.

 

As set forth under Part II, Item 1, “Legal Proceedings” of the Form 10-Q for TCF Financial Corporation (“TCF”) for the quarter ending September 30, 2010, TCF was named in a putative class action challenging its checking account posting practices in August 2010.  The plaintiffs sought damages and other relief, including restitution.  TCF’s account agreement with the plaintiffs contains an arbitration provision under which customers agree to arbitrate disputes such as this dispute in an individual arbitration as opposed to a class action lawsuit.  On November 24, 2010, the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota granted TCF’s motion to compel individual arbitration of all claims by plaintiffs and stayed further proceedings in the legal action.
