§ 272. Banks to report interest rates--Cancellation of charter for violating usury laws--Procedure
It shall be the duty of the officers of all state banks, organized and doing business under and by virtue of the laws of the state, to make a sworn quarterly report to the Bank Commissioner, setting forth the rate of interest charged, retained, reserved or collected upon the loans made in excess of the legal or contract rate of interest during the quarter for which said report is made, and such other detailed information as the Bank Commissioner may require concerning rates of interest charged, and all such reports as show the rates of interest exceeding ten (10%) percent per annum have been charged, shall be published in the annual report of the Bank Commissioner. Provided, that when the report of any bank shall disclose that such bank is willfully loaning money in violation of the interest laws of the state, it shall be his duty to immediately report such violation to the Governor, who may direct the Bank Commissioner to bring suit, through the Attorney General, in a court of competent jurisdiction in the county where the bank is located, to cancel the charter of such bank and the judgment of the court on the trial of said issue shall find the defendant bank guilty or not guilty, and if the judgment is guilty it shall further provide for the cancellation of the charter of said bank and the liquidation of the assets of said bank as the law now provides in cases of insolvent banks, from which judgment either party shall have the right of appeal to the Supreme Court, as in civil cases. Upon such appeal being filed, the Supreme Court shall hear and determine same as an advanced case.
