US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit Opinions
Consumer Financial Protection Bureau v. All American Check Cashing, Inc.
Opinion Date: March 3, 2020
Judge: Stephen Andrew Higginson
Areas of Law: Constitutional Law, Government & Administrative Law
Judge Higginson concluded that the restrictions on the President's removal authority under the Consumer Financial Protection Act are valid and constitutional. Judge Higginson found that neither the text of the United States Constitution nor the Supreme Court's previous decisions support appellants' arguments that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is unconstitutionally structured, and thus he affirmed the district court's judgment.
