Consumers Union joined Public Citizen, Inc., Consumer Federation of America, National Association of Consumer Advocates, National Consumer Law Center, and Tzedek DC in filing a legal brief with the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in support of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).

According to the amicus brief, “[T] his Court should hold that the prohibition on presidential removal of the CFPB’s director without cause is constitutional, and should deny petitioners any relief with respect to their constitutional challenge to the CFPB’s structure.”
