JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A payday lending company is seeking a court order to block Mississippi regulators from taking disciplinary action that could shut down the business.

Attorneys for All American Check Cashing Inc. filed a lawsuit Friday in federal court in Jackson.

There was no immediate response from the state.

The suit seeks to block the Mississippi Department of Banking and Consumer Finance from revoking the operating license of All American and from seizing assets or taking other steps to close the Madison-based company.

In June 2014, the department ordered All American to stop some transactions such as using the proceeds from one delayed-deposit check to pay the principal or fee owed on any other delayed-deposit check.

The department also ordered the company to turn over documents for regulators to investigate.
