The article offers the author's insights on the ruling of U.S. District Judge Warren Edington that a dealer from Connecticut has violated the U.S. Truth in Lending Act. The author says that Edington ruled that the dealer violated the Truth in Lending Act as the Retail Installment Sales Contract first payment due date is obscured by a pre-printed language in the contract. He adds that Edington stated that the payment due date is not conspicuous or clear on the contracts.
