CASE ENTRY

PHH Corporation v. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

The D.C. Circuit, sitting en banc, says that the structure of the CFPB, whose single director does not serve at the pleasure of the president, is constitutional. Nonetheless, (as a dissent characterizes it) the CFPB “flunked ‘Rule of Law 101′” by reinterpreting a statute and retroactively enforcing it against the petitioner, so the agency’s enforcement action can’t stand.
