Jon Hill of Law360 was among a group of reporters to whom Director Chopra recently gave a series of interviews in which he provided significant insights into his views on a range of topics.  We review recent CFPB and other agency developments that provide context for Mr. Chopra’s comments, discuss what his comments reveal about his approach to use of CFPB authorities, and highlight the important takeaways for banks and other companies.  Topics covered include entry of big tech into financial services, Section 1033 rulemaking, application of UDAAP to discrimination, the Military Lending Act, bank/nonbank partnerships, buy-now-pay-later, payday lending, overdraft/NSF fees, and artificial intelligence/machine learning.
