Mulvaney Freezes Regulatory Actions at CFPB

A federal judge didn’t rule on a request for a temporary order to block President Donald Trump from naming his budget director as the temporary head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

At hearing Monday in Washington, government lawyers asked for time to file arguments in the lawsuit filed Sunday by Leandra English, the former top deputy at the agency who was named to the role last week by departing director Richard Cordray. Trump responded by naming Mick Mulvaney, who reported for work Monday and occupied the agency director’s office.
