Appeals Court Upholds Constitutionality of CFPB

Mick Mulvaney director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is trying to dismantle regulations protecting borrowers from payday lenders Appeals Court Upholds Constitutionality of CFPB
Russell Knight | 31 January, 2018, 23:12

PHH fought back in the appeals court, going so far as to challenge the constitutionality of the CFPB as having a single director who can only be fired by the president "for cause". However, the full court upheld the three-judge panel's findings with respect to the statutory claims of PHH, a mortgage lender fined by the CFPB under the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act. United States, a 1935 case reaffirming the legality of the Federal Trade Commission's independent, sole-director structure.

The court's previous ruling in October 2016 stated that the CFPB's leadership structure was unconstitutional and that it granted the agency's director too much power. "Because none of PHH's challenges is grounded in constitutional precedent or principle, we uphold the agency's structure".

The full circuit court left intact the panel's holding that retroactive applying of a new RESPA interpretation violated PHH's due process rights and that the bureau is bound by the three-year statute of limitations for RESPA violations, even in administrative actions. The CFPB became a political football late past year when then-head Richard Cordray resigned to run for governor of OH and the Trump administration installed White House budget director Mick Mulvaney as acting head.

The decision will nearly certainly be appealed to the Supreme Court, which is likely to take the case.

"Congress's decision to provide the CFPB Director a degree of insulation reflects its permissible judgment that civil regulation of consumer financial protection should be kept one step removed from political winds and presidential will", Pillard wrote. English is suing to stop Mulvaney from serving as acting director; a trial judge denied her request for an injunction earlier this month, and the case is now before the DC Circuit. Insulating the director from dismissal at the president's pleasure, they argue, compromises his exclusive authority to supervise and direct executive branch agencies.

In making its ruling, the court rejected the argument that the president could remove the CFPB director without cause. "That dramatic and meaningful difference vividly illustrates that the CFPB's novel single-Director structure diminishes Presidential power more than traditional multi-member independent agencies do", Kavanaugh wrote.
