CFPB Deputy Director Files Emergency Motion to Expedite Appeal

Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Deputy Director Leandra English is seeking an expedited appeal in her case to prove she—not Mick Mulvaney—is the lawful acting director of the bureau, The National Law Review reports.

“Ms. English argues that even without the ‘special circumstances’ presented by her case, her appeal is entitled to expedited consideration because she is appealing from the denial of a preliminary injunction,” according to the article.

“According to Ms. English, there is an ‘urgent public need for clarity’ as to who is the lawful Acting Director because “doubt over who is the legitimate Acting Director hurts the public by casting a pall over the validity of the agency’s actions, since actions taken by an illegally appointed Director may themselves be unlawful,” The National Law Review reports.  “She also claims that as a result of the freeze imposed by Mr. Mulvaney on significant CFPB actions, ‘the public is deprived of the protections and guidelines that Congress intended the CFPB to provide.’”

English proposed the following briefing schedule in her case, according to the article:

  • Appellant’s opening brief: Jan. 30, 2018
  • Amicus briefs supporting appellant: Feb. 6, 2018
  • Appellees’ brief: Feb. 13, 2018
  • Amicus briefs supporting appellees: Feb. 20, 2018
  • Appellant’s reply brief: Feb. 22, 2018
