CFPB drops lawsuit against payday lender

Last year, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau filed suit against a group of payday lenders, alleging that they had deceived consumers and failed to disclose the true cost of the loans, which carried interest rates as high as 950 percent a year.

Today, the CFPB asked the court to dismiss the lawsuit. The agency offered no reason.
