The results of the state's IP-address research were initially listed in a spreadsheet attached to an affidavit from an attorney for the state.
Integrity objected that the affidavit of the state's attorney 1 does not satisfy the Minn. City of Duluth, St. Rather than dispute this point, the state filed the affidavits of three legal assistants who conducted the research on the borrowers' IP addresses. While we conduct a de novo review of the district court's summary judgment decision, McKee v.
Here, the legal assistants performed the research, their affidavits are based on personal knowledge, and they would be competent to testify on the methodology used to verify the physical locations associated with borrowers' IP addresses. Consequently, the district court did not abuse its discretion by considering these affidavits. To counter the state's research, Integrity, through its executive vice president, submitted a report obtained from an unnamed third party with which Integrity had contracted to run its own trace of the physical locations associated with borrowers' IP addresses.
But according to Integrity's report, the remainder of the IP addresses were associated with various locations around the country. Integrity argues that the discrepancy between its report and the state's research demonstrates a genuine issue of material fact as to whether Integrity extended payday loans to Minnesotans and that the district court improperly weighed the evidence, deciding that the state's research was more credible.
But the state accounted for this discrepancy by showing that Integrity's report did not provide the physical location associated with a borrower's IP address but rather provided the physical location of the headquarters for the internet service provider associated with the borrower's IP address. Thus, Integrity's report does not refute the state's evidence. Further, Integrity's report was prepared by an unnamed third party and used an unspecified methodology, and Integrity's vice president does not have personal knowledge to testify about the contents of the report.
Under these circumstances, the district court did not err in concluding that there are no genuine issues of material fact precluding summary judgment.
Second, Integrity argues that the district court erred in granting summary judgment to the state because the loans were consummated in Delaware, wholly outside of Minnesota's borders, and the Dormant Commerce Clause precludes application of Minn. While the Commerce Clause represents an affirmative grant of power to Congress, it also implicitly prohibits states from enacting statutes that discriminate against or unduly burden interstate commerce.
This implicit negative command is known as the Dormant Commerce Clause. It is well settled, however, that the Commerce Clause allows states to incidentally regulate aspects of interstate commerce when Congress has chosen not to legislate. Relying on a patchwork of inapposite cases, Integrity argues that because it received and accepted loan applications in Delaware, and a loan contract is consummated where the last act necessary for its formation occurs, Bryan v.
City of New York, F. Midwest Title Loans, Inc. Integrity's reliance on Midwest Title is misguided. In Midwest Title, all borrowers had to physically present themselves at the lender's location in Illinois in order to enter into a binding loan agreement. Each loan that the lender made to an Indiana resident was in the form of a check, drawn on an Illinois bank, that was physically handed to the borrower at the lender's loan office in Illinois and could be cashed there.
The conditional transfer of title to the loan's collateral was made in Illinois, and the lender received the payments required by the loan agreement in Illinois. In that case, the court held that Indiana sought to regulate commerce that was wholly extraterritorial. This case depends on facts that do not lead to the same conclusion. Contrary to Integrity's characterizations, its extension of payday loans to Minnesota residents did not occur wholly outside Minnesota's borders.
Quik Payday, F. Minnesotans submitted applications for payday loans to Integrity from their computers located in Minnesota. Integrity then contacted loan applicants at their Minnesota homes shortly after each applicant completed the online application, called applicants at their Minnesota places of employment as part of the loan underwriting process, and contacted applicants' Minnesota financial institutions to confirm that the applicants' paychecks were automatically deposited into their bank accounts.
Once applicants' loans were approved, Integrity routinely contacted Minnesota borrowers for a variety of other reasons, including to service its payday loans and to collect on delinquent accounts. As revealed by Integrity's business records, Integrity directed approximately 27, contacts to Minnesotans for the purpose of doing business in Minnesota. In addition to these contacts, it is undisputed that Integrity deposited payday loans directly into Minnesota borrowers' bank accounts and engaged in more than 20, transactions withdrawing interest and principal from these accounts.
We conclude that where the loan contract is consummated is not dispositive. Under the facts of this case, Minnesota's efforts to regulate payday loans that Integrity extended to Minnesotans do not violate the Dormant Commerce Clause.
See State by Humphrey v. Finally, Integrity argues that the district court lacked a basis for enjoining Integrity's lending activities in Minnesota until it registers with the department of commerce, acquires proper licensing, and complies with state law. The attorney general's power to obtain injunctions under Minn. Cross Country Bank, Inc. The district court need only consider whether the state has shown that Integrity violated the statutes involved and whether injunctive relief would fulfill the legislative purpose of the statutes.
The legislature enacted Minn. The legislature specifically provided injunctive relief as a remedy for statutory violations. Thus, the district court did not abuse its discretion in enjoining Integrity's lending activities in Minnesota until Integrity registers with the department of commerce, acquires proper licensing, and complies with state law.
Because there is no genuine issue of material fact, the Dormant Commerce Clause does not preclude application of Minnesota law to regulate payday lending that does not occur wholly extraterritorially, and the district court did not abuse its discretion in either awarding damages or enjoining Integrity's payday lending activities in Minnesota, we affirm the district court's grant of summary judgment to the state.
Minnesota does not ban payday loans; it requires that lenders that extend payday loans to Minnesotans are properly licensed and comply with state laws. Integrity also argues that Minnesota's regulatory burdens violate the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment because Integrity's payday loan transactions occurred outside of Minnesota and were governed by Delaware law. Integrity argues that because it did not specifically direct its actions at Minnesotans, it does not have sufficient contacts with Minnesota to justify jurisdiction.
The undisputed facts establish that Integrity had many thousands of contacts with Minnesota residents for the purpose of conducting its business related to payday lending, and these contacts were not remotely confined to Delaware's borders. Integrity's due process argument is entirely without merit, and we do not address it further. Integrity also argues that, because it should have prevailed on its arguments that the Dormant Commerce Clause and the Due Process Clause prohibited Minnesota from regulating its online payday loans extended to Minnesotans, the district court erred in awarding costs, disbursements, and attorney fees to the state.
