Partner Eric Johnson Debunks CFPB Death Rumors
In the September/October issue of Non-Prime Times, the official publication of the National Automotive Finance Association, Partner Eric Johnson explains why the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, now re-born as the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection ("Bureau"), is still very much alive and kicking. Eric outlines the Bureau's recent actions, including at least six new enforcement actions since April, subpoenas and CIDs being issued, ongoing investigations and new examinations being scheduled.
