Partner Allen Denson comments for Automotive News on Seila Law vs. CFPB decision

On June 29, Automotive News spoke to Hudson Cook Partner Allen Denson for analysis of the Supreme Court's decision on Seila vs. CFPB, which ruled that the current structure of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is unconstitutional. Allen noted that although it does not undermine the overall mission of the federal organization, the Supreme Court's decision to make the CFPB director more vulnerable to replacement is a victory for those that oppose the agency.

"The really interesting question is what does this mean for the bureau going forward," Allen told Automotive News. "Let's say there's a change in the presidency this fall: You could see a Biden presidency replace Kraninger on Day 1."
