Four Amicus Briefs Filed in BCFP Constitutionality Supreme Court Case, Argue Congress Violated Separation of Powers

Last week, four separate entities filed amicus briefs in the State National Bank of Big Spring v. Mnuchin, Case No. 18-5062, case before the U.S. Supreme Court this term. As previously reported by insideARM, this case questions the constitutionality of the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection’s (BCFP or Bureau) structure due to the “for-cause” removal requirement of the Bureau’s director, the Bureau’s exemption from Congress’s power of the purse, and lack of internal checks and balances due to the Bureau’s single director structure.

All four petitions are filed in support of State National Bank of Big Spring, arguing that the Court should find the Bureau’s structure unconstitutional.
