(UNDATED) - Several pro-consumer advocacy groups led by the Center for Responsible Lending filed a friend-of-the-court brief that asks a federal appeals court to find unlawful a bank's practice of charging overdraft penalties when consumers have enough funds in their debit credit card accounts to cover a transaction at the time it is made.
