Usury in NC According to the lectlaw.com page linked to the right: "NORTH CAROLINA, the legal interest rate and the general usury limit is 8%. How…ever, there is a provision for a variable rate, which is 16% or the T-Bill rate for non-competitive T-Bills. Above $ 25,000 there is no express limit. However, the law providing for 8% is still on the books - be careful and see a lawyer!"
My experience with Utah, If your not LDS don't do it
Limits the amount of interest a lender can charge to the borrower. In Illinois the rate is 9%. However, there are so many exceptions to usury, that the only conceivable …scenario is borrowing money to purchase groceries. In Illinois, if a usurious loan is extended to a borrower, the borrower may seek damages in the amount equal to twice the interest paid on the loan. Exceptions to usury are R/E loans, business loans, loans to corporations, and many others. Read the statute to be sure.
Bankruptcy is a Federal matter. All BK courts are Federal Circuit Courts. They are named for the area they generally service...like US Federal Bankruptcy Court for the Distric…t of Northern Arizona....or such. To facilitate handling of cases, the Courts tend to interpret certain areas of the Law as best fits their regions...as in Community Property states compared to ones that aren't, what is the definition of real estate, that type of thing. But the BK laws are really the same anywhere in the country.

No. Twenty-three States in the USA have them, but Utah is not among them.
Utah has no state laws governing Airsoft guns other than the federal law requiring the orange tip and the lack of any law requiring the tip to remain on the gun. However, the …cities of North Ogden, Ogden, Centerville, South Jordan and South Ogden have laws prohibiting ownership of Airsoft guns. These laws have been uniformly enforced by law enforcement after an incident of mistaken identity by a police officer who faced an Airsoft gun without the orange tip and thought it was a real gun. Other cities throughout the country have laws ranging from New York City's requirement that the entire gun be made of bright colored plastic, to the perverse law in some Illinois cities that prohibit the sale or transportation of Airsoft guns but allow the removal of the orange tips.
Yes, it does. Utah's Good Samaritain Act reads, it was altered alittle in 1987 but is still pretty much the same. Quote: A person who renders emergency care …at or near the scene of, or during an emergency, gratuitously and in good faith, is not liable for any civil damages or penalties as a result of any act or omission by the person rendering the emergency care, unless the person is grossly negligent or caused the emergency. As used in this section, "emergency" means an unexpected occurrence involving injury, threat of injury, or illness to a person or the public, including motor vehicle accidents, disasters, actual or threatened discharges, removal, or disposal of hazardous materials, and other accidents or events of a similar nature. "Emergency care" includes actual assistance or advice offered to avoid, mitigate, or attempt to mitigate the effects of an emergency.
