In a ruling on Wednesday, the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the single-director power structure of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). The court ruled that the CFPB’s current one director structure is constitutional, which is a reversal of an October 2016 ruling that struck down the agency’s structure. This ruling confirms that the president can only remove the director of the CFPB for cause and not at will. The court found no constitutional defect in Congress’s decision to keep the CFPB removed from partisan politics and presidential will in order to provide consumer financial protection. Groups in favor of a structure change to the CFPB argue that the current scheme lacks accountability and will continue to push Congress to transform the agency.
