Appeals court CFPB ruling a big win for consumers

Appeals court CFPB ruling a big win for consumers

In 2016, a panel of three judges of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit held that the structure of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) was unconstitutional.

The CFPB has a single executive (unlike some agencies, which are headed by a multi-person commission), and the CFPB’s head can only be removed by the president for a good cause, not just any political reason. The panel found that this was an infringement upon the president’s proper constitutional powers.

Mick Mulvaney

A federal appeals court has upheld the constitutionality of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's structure in the face of challenges from business interests and conservatives.

The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 7-3 on Wednesday that a provision in the 2010 Dodd-Frank law that limits the president’s ability to remove the CFPB director during his or her five-year term does not violate the president’s authority to appoint and remove executive branch officers.
