The D.C. Circuit has entered an order directing PHH Corporation to file a response to the CFPB’s petition for rehearing en banc in CFPB v. PHH Corporation.

The order, filed November 23, 2016, requires PHH to file its response within 15 days.  It also invites the Solicitor General to file a response to the petition for rehearing en banc, expressing the views of the United States, but does not set a date by which the Solicitor General must file any response.  We expect the Solicitor General to support the CFPB’s petition and given the impending change in Administrations, to file a response promptly.

The order states that absent further order of the court, the court will not accept a reply to the responses.
