Lawsuit Proceeds Support The Freestore Foodbank

CINCINNATI, Ohio, October 5, 2016 - Cincinnati's Freestore Foodbank just received a donation of $12,266.59.

The lawsuit alleged that Eagle Loan Company of Ohio, Inc. charged borrowers interest over the rate allowed by Ohio law, and was brought by Minnillo & Jenkins Co., LPA and Goldenberg Schneider, LPA.
