Press Briefing with Legal Experts to Review CFPB v. CFSA SCOTUS Oral Arguments
Washington, D.C. – On Oct. 3, at 12 pm ET (Time subject to change per end of arguments), Americans for Financial Reform (AFR) will host a virtual press briefing to review the oral arguments in one of this term’s most important Supreme Court cases concerning the stability of the American financial system and the future of consumer protection: CFPB v. CFSA, a constitutional challenge to the funding structure of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).
The Supreme Court’s decision on whether to overturn the decision of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals has significant ramifications not only for the agency’s 12 years of consumer protection rules and enforcement actions, but for other critical federal agencies and programs that Congress also chose to fund outside of the annual appropriations process such as the Federal Reserve and FDIC, Social Security and Medicare.
During the press briefing, legal experts will provide real-time reactions to the oral arguments being heard Tuesday morning and will dive into the broader impact this case will have for the American public. After a brief set of remarks, the call will open for media Q&A.
