Yes, but only up to a point.  Specifically, once the statutory limit of the license is reached, no additional contract balance above that limit may be recovered. Our analysis begins with the N.C. General Statutes, specifically Chapter 87-10, which states, in pertinent part, that “the holder of a limited license shall be entitled to act as general contractor for any single project with a value of up to five hundred thousand dollars ($500,000)[.]”  We also need to bear in mind that in 1983,… [read post]

Five years ago, when The Care Bair womanned the helm at the FDIC and was prodding banks to make payday-like loans to poor consumers, but to cap those loans at a 36 percent APR, most banks who experimented with the products were scratching their heads, trying to figure out how to make money on small loans made at those rates when the borrowers posed such a high default risk. These days, when banks of all sizes are strapped for income-yielding products and are dipping appendages bigger than than their… [read post]

NAFCU Compliance Blog's Anthony Demangone was reading an interview with Elizabeth Warren recently and rather than spitting up a little in his mouth, actually agreed with something she said. In this instance, it was about why Warren wants to find ways to make financial product disclosures "simple": "Complex regulations are killing community banks. They can’t afford an army of lawyers to work through the regulatory thicket." Anthony was all over that lawyer-bashing bitch-slap like he'd just found… [read post]

One of the country's leading behavioral economists, Sendhil Mullainathan, who currently teaches at Harvard but was the CFPB's head of research, recently gave an interview to the American Banker's Kevin Wack, in which Professor Mullainathan made some points that concern CFPB critics like the author of this screed sheet, but also contain indications that at least some true believers in behavioral economic theory are fair minded enough to understand the dangers of pushing the envelope with any… [read post]

I've been critical of "blown" foreclosure seizures in the past, especially of Bank of America's repeated FUBARs and its seizure of pet parrots and similar heinous crimes against nature. Unfortunately for the banking industry, it's not only the giant whipping boys who step in piles of mud pies and make headlines in this regard. A woman in McArthur, Ohio, about 70 miles south of Columbus, said a bank mistakenly cleared items from her home, confusing it for a foreclosed house across the street,… [read post]

While I was gallivanting about the High Country last week, serving the Prince of Darkness, Housing Wire publisher Paul Jackson was deflating the Hindenburg of anti-bank gasbags, Yves Smith. Paul was writing about a decision in Arkansas in which a judge decided that as long as a loan servicer is a note "holder," it matters not who actually "owns" a note as far as the right to foreclose is concerned. If the borrower is in default, the "holder" of the note can foreclose. In addition, a borrower, not… [read post]

Just a few weeks ago I wrote about what seems to be a pervasive though obvious problem with the analysis of standing for ADA accessibility plaintiffs. (“Oops! – Can a plaintiff suffer an ADA injury if he gets exactly what he wants?” Oct. 4, 2013). The 11th Circuit apparently overlooked my critique when it decided Houston v. Marod Supermarkets, Inc., 2013 WL 5859575 (11th Cir. 2013) on November 1. Nonetheless, the case is worth examining as an example of the kind of slippery… [read post]

While deckhanding for Double J. Marine, LLC aboard its towboat, the M/V MISS KAYLYNN, Matthew Nuber seriously injured his back while pulling on a face wire.  On the day of the accident, Nuber only had the benefit of an emergency room physician’s opinion, without any diagnostic testing, such as an x-ray or an MRI, that he had only pulled a muscle.  One week later, Nuber returned to the ER where another physician released him to work full duty, still without any diagnostic testing, and… [read post]
