Judge Timothy Kelly heard arguments in the case from Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Deputy Director Leandra English challenging President Donald Trump’s appointment of Acting Director Mick Mulvaney to lead the bureau as 2017 came to a close. The judge in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia case, English v. Trump et. al., will ultimately rule on the president’s authority to appoint an acting director and the appropriate statutes for CFPB leadership. “Much of the legal questions in the case surround not only what statute should dictate succession at the bureau, but also the criteria the judge should use when considering which law applies,” American Banker reports.
