with USABancShares.com Inc. of Philadelphia.

Under the settlement, the $250 million-asset cyberbank will continue to operate as USABancShares.com but will permanently stop doing business under its prior name, USABanc.com. The Internet bank will be permitted to maintain the old name, however, as an inactive domain identity.

The agreement also calls for USABancShares.com's site to use colors and marks that are clearly distinguishable from U.S. Bancorp's. But in an about face from its previous demand, U.S. Bancorp agreed to give the Internet bank 30 days to redirect customers to its new USABancshares.com site. The settlement did not mandate either side to pay compensatory damages. -- Taran Provost
