A fifth amicus brief has been filed in support of All American Check Cashing and the other appellants in their interlocutory appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit of the district court’s ruling upholding the CFPB’s constitutionality.
The brief was filed by the Cato Institute which describes itself as “a nonpartisan public policy research foundation dedicated to advancing the principles of individual liberty, free markets, and limited government.”
The CFPB’s brief is due to be filed by August 1. We expect the brief to reveal the CFPB’s position on its constitutionality.
