The CFPB suffered a blow yesterday in the most significant attack against its authority to date. In PHH Mortgage’s appeal from a $109,000,000 disgorgement order issued by the CFPB in June of 2015, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit held that “the CFPB is unconstitutionally structured” and violates Article II of the Constitution. The court also found that the CFPB violated PHH’s due process rights and rejected the Bureau’s determination that its enforcement actions brought as administrative proceedings are not bound by any statutes of limitations.
