U.S. Department of Justice Responds to CFPB Deputy Director’s Motion

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has filed a response in opposition to Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Deputy Director Leandra English’s motion requesting an expedited appeal in her case to prove she—not Mick Mulvaney—is the lawful acting director of the bureau.

“While agreeing that the authorities cited by Ms. English provide for expedited consideration of her appeal and stating that it has no objection to the Court scheduling oral argument ‘as expeditiously as possible’  the DOJ asserts in its response that ‘expedited consideration does not require an abbreviated briefing schedule,’” The National Law Review reports.

English is scheduled to provide an opening appellate brief Jan. 30 and the DOJ has 14 days to respond. The DOJ argues it should be allowed the standard 30-day time frame to respond to the brief, according to the article.
