United States v. Bayport Credit Union (E.D. Va.)


On March 18, 2022 the court entered a consent order in United States v. BayPort Credit Union (E.D. Va.).  The complaint, which was filed on March 10, 2022, alleges that a credit union failed to cap servicemembers’ interest rates for pre-service loans at 6% and repossessed servicemembers’ motor vehicles without the required court orders.  The consent order requires BayPort to pay $69,443.10 to 24 servicemembers and pay a $40,000 civil penalty.  The agreement also includes changes in BayPort’s SCRA interest rate benefit and repossession policies and employee training.
