In In re Arce Riverside, LLC (2015) 538 BR 563, the court ruled that the broker acting for itself as a principal in the lending transaction could not avail itself of the usury exemption. See §3.40.
In First Intercontinental Bank v Ahn (9th Cir 2015) 798 F3d 1149, the court in a diversity action recognized California's fundamental policy of favoring reciprocity of attorney fee agreements embodied in CC §1717 by applying California law even though the loan documents had a valid clause electing application of Georgia law to the documents.
