The acting director of the federal agency whose sole mission is protecting consumers—the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau—has signaled that the agency’s enforcement posture will be less aggressive under his leadership. Instead, Mick Mulvaney is calling on state regulators and state attorneys general to fill the void. Please join Mayer Brown lawyers Melanie Brody, Stephanie Robinson and Frank Doorley on April 5 for a 30-minute discussion of state consumer protection enforcement efforts—what states have done in the past and what they might be doing more of going forward in response to Mulvaney’s request.
