IBIS provided Four Paws with funding under a forward contracts for the acquisition and disposal of claims. As a result, four paws declined to fulfil their obligation to make payment to IBIS because the payment required a hefty interest payment. The IBIS case brought Four Paw against Four Paw for infringement, and Four Paw claimed extortion as a positive defence.
Assessing whether the arrangement violates New York usurious laws, the tribunal first examined whether a contract for the acquisition and disposal of prospective claims could be regarded as a credit. Noting the far-reaching New York precedent, the Supreme Court held that the amount of money granted to a single claimant to make a debt must be strictly reimbursable and must not depend on the occurrence of unforeseen circumstances.
Thereupon, the CFI cited clauses from the Memorandum of Understanding according to which (i) IBIS would obtain a share of the Four Paws turnover per day, (ii) the operation was not a credit, and (iii) the Memorandum of Understanding is covered by the Uniform Commercial Code (which does not regulate loans). In the view of the Tribunal, these rules showed that the deal was not a credit and not extortion.
Four Paws' assertion that the arrangement provides for a'fixed and final day payment', which may be used to charge a royalty interest fee, was also dealt with by the CFI. Against this background, the Tribunal found that no such clause could be found, but even if such a clause existed, the defendant's defence would still fall because "the arrangement does not provide for any responsibility in the case that the seller's transaction fails because it could not earn enough income to proceed [and thus make payments].
" It also found that Four Paws was not obliged to make any payment not related to income to remedy defects and that there was no specified end date in the arrangement by which all of Four Paws' debts would fall due. According to the judge, even if the contract had provided a credit, there would be no breach of New York usufruct because Four Paws could not prove that IBIS intends to calculate a usufruct interest rat.
For this purpose, in order to perpetrate racketeering, a individual must conclude the arrangement in the knowledge that he is charged interest of more than 25 per cent. IBIS could not have had such an intention if it had concluded the contract because the parties were unaware of the Four Paws' forthcoming sale and none of them could have known when or even whether IBIS would reclaim the amount of capital attributable to Four Paws, let alone the extra 25 per cent needed to achieve a prodigious price.
Suppliers of cash advance payments that are paid back through the sale of prospective claims in New York may have greater faith that these advance payments are not credits and are not governed by usurious law. In order for a given operation to be regarded as a'loan', the originator must be fully redeemable and must not be dependent on any prospective events or a series of events beyond the contracting parties' reasonable reasonable control. However, the originator of the operation must be able to repay the amount of the advance in question.
In order for a New York legal definition of a prodigious credit to apply, the creditor must know at the moment the credit is granted that the interest exceeds the exorbitant price, which is not possible if there is no fixed date of payment and the amount of the payment is dependent on the nature of the debt acquired.
