CFPB Seeks Input on Amicus Program


On August 2, the CFPB posted a request for email submissions recommending state or federal appellate-level “cases with one or more important legal questions about the interpretation or application of a federal consumer financial protection statute or regulation” in which the CFPB could file an amicus brief. The CFPB also announced that all of its amicus activity will be posted on its website. To date, the CFPB has filed six such briefs, four in cases involving TILA and two related to the FDCPA.
