Christopher Peterson, a native Utahn who is a University of Florida law professor and an expert on the high-credit industry, says states always imposed usury caps until recent decades - and Utah abolished its usury cap only in the early 1980s.

Answer . \nREPOSSESSION LAWS IN MOST STATES ARE DESIGNED TO PROTECT THE LENDER (i.e. BANK),WHO IS THE LEGAL OWNER AND TITLE HOLDER OF A VEHICLE UNTIL THE LOAN FOR SUCH VEHICLE HAS BEEN PAID OFF. A VEHICLE CAN BE REPOSSESSED AS EARLY AS 30 DAYS PAST PAYMENT DUE. MOST BANKS DON'T BEGIN REPOSSESSIO…N PROCEEDINGS TIL 90 DAYS. IF YOU'RE IN THIS SITUATION, IT IS BEST TO CONTACT THE BANK AND ARRANGE ANY TYPE OF PAYMENT ASAP. MOST BANKS DON'T LIKE TO REPO VEHICLES IF AT ALL POSSIBLE, BECAUSE REPOSSESSION COMPANIES CHARGE A SIGNIFICANT FEE. ON TOP OF THAT, THEY LOSE INTEREST PAYMENTS AND THEIR STUCK W/ A VEHICLE THEY HAVE TO AUCTION.\n. \nIF YOUR VEHICLE HAS ALREADY BEEN REPOSSESSED, THAN YOU ARE OUT OF LUCK. THE ONLY WAY TO GET THE VEHICLE BACK IS TO COME UP W/ ALL BACK PAYMENTS INCLUDING LATE FEES AND THE REPO FEE WHICH YOU ARE LIABLE FOR. FAILURE TO DO THIS WILL RESULT IN PERMANENT LOSS OF THE VEHICLE AND A BAD CREDIT RATING, WHICH WILL BAR YOU FROM OBTAINING ANY LOAN IN THE NEAR FUTURE.\n. \nIN CLOSING, DON'T FALL BEHIND ON YOUR PAYMENTS. BORROW MONEY FROM FAMILY OR FRIENDS IF POSSIBLE OR LET THE BANK KNOW THAT YOU WILL BE LATE ON A PAYMENT. LET THEM KNOW THAT YOU ARE THINKING OF THEM AND WILL FOLLOW THROUGH ON YOUR OBLIGATION. A LATE PAYMENT IS BETTER THAN NO PAYMENT IN THE BANK'S EYE. HAVING A VEHICLE REPOSSESSED WILL RESULT IN A PERMANENT BAD MARK ON YOUR CREDIT. BANKS WILL NOT WANT TO LOAN YOU MONEY OR THEY WILL MAKE YOU PAY DEARLY W/ INFLATED INTEREST RATES ON LOANED MONEY IN THE FUTURE. (MORE)
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. (MORE)

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. Thes…e 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.

Oh, and in most cases I've heard of, it's not a "law" as in aspecific legislative decree. More just the common practice of civilcourts,… who reason that the ring was given in expectation ofmarriage, so if she breaks it off, she "owes" it back, but if hechanges his mind, that's not her fault.

A: St. Ambrose defined usury as "whatever is added to capital." Thepractice of earning interest from loans and investments wascondemned from by various councils, from the Council of Nicaeaonwards, and represented one of the most grievous sins of earlyChristian tradition. Jacques LeGoff ( Your Money… or YourLife ) believes that purgatory was created in the Middle Agesin order to have an afterlife punishment for usury, short ofeternal damnation in hell. Taking their lead from the Catholic Church, the leaders of theProtestant Reformation condemned any increase in the amount to berepaid when no more than a simple loan was at issue, but allowedinterest to be charged when repayment was late or when the lendershared in the risk of a venture. Protestant Churches graduallymoved away from treating interest and profits as sin, opening theway for modern capitalism, where the profit motive is no longer asin. The Catholic Church was more resistant to changing its ancientdoctrine on usury. However, when Pope Pius XI signed the Concordatwith Mussolini, the Vatican went from near-bankrupcy to being anenormously wealthy organisation. Faced with a need to use the fundsnow at the disposal of the pope, he employed a gifted financialadvisor who soon taught the Vatican how to pursue the highestreturns on its funds, through interest and investments, some ofwhich were quite contrary to Catholic teaching. In 1950, Pope PiusXII rhetorically asked, " Does not the social function of thebank consist in making it possible for the individual to render hismoney fruitful, even if only in a small degree, instead ofdissipating it, or leaving it sleep without any profit, either tohimself or to others. " What had once been regarded as usuryand sinful no longer is. The sin of usury still exists whereexorbitant interest is charged. (MORE)
You could fill someone's bathtub with Jell-o. That shouldn't causeany property damage, and as long as you have permission to be inthe house, and have the money/time to make that much Jell-o and letit set, it could be funny. You could fill someone's car with balloons (NOT water balloons...that would… cause property damage). Just don't break into the car. You could randomly leave a zucchini on someone's doorstep with abow and a note that says "You've been Zuked." If you get enoughpeople to do it, it could be very funny... AND it might get peopleto make more Zucchini bread, which is a great improvement to theworld. :) (MORE)
Usury laws don't typically apply to payday lenders because the state specifically regulates payday loans. Since usury laws are at the state level, the payday lending laws override the state usury laws. Most payday lenders charge what is known as an application or origination fee when issuing a loa…n and the term is clearly defined. For most states, the regulations provide for between $7 and $25 per $100 in principal (borrowed). The average payday loan lasts for about three weeks, so we will use 21 days (of 365 actual days) as the basis for annualization. At $7 (7% of principal), the annualized interest rate would be approximately 122% (simple interest method). At $25 (25% of principal), the annualized interest rate would be approximately 435% (simple interest method). So, "good" payday loan companies (read: those that are licensed) do not charge APRs of 500%. When a person rolls over a loan, the contracts are set up so that the "extension" is actually a new loan, allowing the payday loan company to charge another application/origination fee (these are labeled renewal origination fees). In this circumstance, the annualized APRs are the same. (MORE)
