Topics will include:

  • An overview of the case from a constitutional and administrative law prospective
  • Discussion of the parties and amicus brief filers and their positions
  • Possible outcomes from the Supreme Court and the effect on companies and individuals litigating before the SEC and CFPB
  • Potential impacts of the case moving forward, including:
    • ALJ appointment and ratification issues at the CFPB and SEC
    • Due process, equal protection, and separation of powers issues inherent to the CFPB's and SEC's administrative forums
    • Pros and cons of administrative and federal forums
  • Moving beyond the Appointments Clause – What is the next case to work its way to the Supreme Court?

This session will focus on the constitutional issues immediately before the Supreme Court, the issues that may arise tomorrow, and the practical outcomes for providers of consumer financial products and services and other entities subject to enforcement by the CFPB or the SEC.

Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and will receive a copy of the presentation and other materials following the live event.
