Otoe-Missouria Tribe v. NY State Department of Financial Services

This case concerns the applicability of state law to payday lenders affiliated with Indian tribes. The Bureau’s brief explains that neither the passage of the Dodd-Frank Act nor the Bureau’s creation affects whether states may apply their laws to tribally affiliated lenders. The Bureau’s brief does not express a view on whether the state of New York may apply its laws to the tribally affiliated lenders in this case.
