Case Description: 

In Mills v. Midwest Title Loans, the Seventh Circuit held that an Indiana law that regulates car-title loans - a form of predatory lending - was unconstitutional as applied to a company based in Illinois that made loans to Indiana residents. The state of Indiana filed a cert. petition, seeking Supreme Court review of the circuit court decision. The Litigation Group, on behalf of Public Citizen, Center for Responsible Lending, AARP, Consumer Federation of America, Indiana Legal Services, National Consumer Law Center, and Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law, filed an amicus brief in support of the petition. The Supreme Court denied the petition on October 4, 2010.
