United States v. Charles Hallinan, et al.


Charles Hallinan ran multiple companies that provided short-term loans to tens of thousands of people, including Pennsylvania residents, in exchange for fees that were in gross violation of the usury laws in many states, including Pennsylvania. Hallinan's companies collected on these loans by debiting funds from the bank accounts of his borrowers on their expected paydays, a practice referred to as "payday loans."
