Federal Judge Tells CFPB it Must Give Depositions Even if Doing So ‘Annoys’
The Washington Examiner asks CEI's John Berlau about the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's reluctance to participate in depositions:
"John Berlau, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute who follows CFPB, said the bureau's claim that it is exempt from depositions shows the agency is “acting above the law. They are pushing the limits.”
The CFPB posture is hypocritical because “they are saying no, we can’t be deposed like any other party in a lawsuit. It’s just reeks of hypocrisy,” he said."
