Deborah Jackson v. Payday Financial, LLC

Date:
Citation Number: 12-2617

Brief of the Federal Trade Commission in response to an invitation from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit to present the Commission’s views.  The brief explains that, although the FTC’s separate litigation challenging defendants’ practices inducing consumers into Tribal Court presents distinct issues, aspects of the defendants’ conduct that make it unfair and deceptive under the FTC Act are relevant to whether the clause in the loan contracts requiring tribal arbitration of consumer claims is unconscionable.
