The CFPB’s final arbitration rule was the subject of an article by Ballard Spahr partners Alan Kaplinsky and Mark Levin recently published by The Regulatory Review, a publication of the University of Pennsylvania Law School’s Penn Program on Regulation.

The article, The CFPB’s Final Arbitration Rule Run Amok, discusses the final rule’s failure to satisfy the Dodd-Frank Act’s limits on the CFPB’s arbitration rulemaking authority and its promotion of an untethered public policy favoring class action litigation that benefits only class action lawyers.
