Auto Finance News publishes article by Partner Michael Benoit: Is Disparate Impact Dead?
Partner Michael Benoit's monthly article in Auto Finance News addresses the changes since the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (BCFP) announced in December 2016 that it would be turning its attention from disparate impact claims in auto finance. More recently, Congress invalidated the BCFP's fair lending guidance for the auto industry, and it announced plans to revisit its position on disparate impact claims under the Equal Credit Opportunity Act. Michael cautions, "Don't write off disparate impact just yet."
