The certificate from .... (name escapes me) could have expired and yes, it
does take some time to renew the certificate for SSL, but that doesn't
change the fact that it should be https which would automatically make that
"lock" icon be locked.

That is EASILY grounds for a lawsuit if in writing.  I'm not a lawyer, but I
have seen a few successful cases against companies that have assured secure
transactions and in fact were not.
