Judge sides with Trump in CFPB succession battle

A federal judge on Tuesday sided with the Trump administration in the succession battle at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).

Judge Timothy Kelly, of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, denied a petition from Leandra English for an order to block Budget Director Mick Mulvaney from taking over the agency as acting director for an interim period.

Former CFPB Director Richard Cordray resigned on Friday, and promoted English, his former chief of staff, to deputy director. English filed for a temporary restraining order, arguing that she rightfully assumed the role as acting director under a line of succession established by the Dodd-Frank Act. Kelly ruled that President Donald Trump had the authority to appoint an acting director under the Vacancy Reform Act, which overrode the succession language in Dodd-Frank.
