Engel Notes that Cleveland was Ahead of its Time on Subprime Lawsuits

Former C|M|LAW Professor Kathleen Engel published an Opinion piece in the Plain Dealer on December 23, 2013.  In the piece, Cleveland ahead of its time on subprime lawsuits, Engel notes that “Cleveland was the one of the first cities to cry foul when subprime lenders targeted people with complex and unaffordable loan products.” She explains that although Cleveland’s early efforts against the banks’ practices were ahead of their time and ultimately unsuccessful, they lit the way for those that followed.
