JAMES F. HOLDERMAN, Chief Judge: In this proposed class action lawsuit, plaintiffs Ian Walker (Walker) and Stephen Kruse (Kruse) allege that defendant S.W.I.F.T. SCRL (SWIFT) violated their constitutional and statutory rights when it disclosed certain financial records to the United States government.

For the reasons stated below, SWIFTs Motion to Dismiss the Amended Complaint1 for Failure to State a Claim (Dkt. No. 13) is granted in part and denied in part. Count I is dismissed with prejudice. Counts II and III may remain as pleaded. Count IV is dismissed without prejudice. Plaintiffs are granted leave to file a Third Amended Complaint for purposes of correcting the pleading defects in relation to Count IV, as well as including Counts II and III in a renumbered complaint format, on or before June 29, 2007.

Plaintiffs, by their counsel, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, as and for their Second Amended Complaint against Defendant assert upon information and belief as follows:

1. This case challenges the legality of Defendant's disclosure of financial records or other information to the United States Government. Upon information and belief such disclosure was done without consent or warrants and in violation of the United States Constitution and federal statutes.
