Course description

The Payday Lending Rule's general compliance date was supposed to be August 19, 2019. That date, however, is currently stayed (delayed) under an order in a federal court case challenging the CFPB's legitimacy and the validity of the Rule. As a result, lenders have no obligation to comply with the Rule until the court-ordered stay is lifted.

Earlier this year, the Supreme Court cleared up  the legal status of the CFPB when it ruled that the Bureau’s management structure was unconstitutional because the director could only be dismissed by the president for cause, but ordered that the language of the law be changed to provide for dismissal at the will of the president. That hasn’t satisfied the plaintiff in the lawsuit filed in the federal court in Texas. We’ll discuss the plaintiff’s stance and any developments that may change the status of the Rule.
