The battle over CFPB independence

May SCOTUS re-think independent executive agencies altogether?

We consider the upcoming, long-anticipated SCOTUS fight over the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Jolina Cuaresma (UC Berkeley Law; Georgetown Law), a former CFPB attorney and industry advisor discusses why the agency should remain independent but how Congress' design of a single bureau director may have backfired; Ilan Wurman (Sandra Day O'Connor Law) will then discuss whether 'Seila Law' may lead the Court to re-consider independent executive agencies altogether, and the longstanding precedent 'Humphrey's Executor v. U.S.'
