Mark T. Dabertin, special counsel in the Financial Services Practice Group of Pepper Hamilton, was quoted in the November 12, 2019 Reverse Mortgage Daily article, "11 States Join Supreme Court Challenge to CFPB’s Core Structure."
Changing the structure of the CFPB could make the agency more malleable to ever-changing political headwinds, according to Mark Dabertin, an attorney in law firm Pepper Hamilton's Financial Services Practice Group.
"This structure allows the incumbent Director to exercise a degree of independence that would be lost if the president could replace the Director at will," Dabertin told RMD in September. "If the latter were to occur, the CFPB would likely be viewed as purely political and its actions would constantly be at risk of being undone."
