American Banker reports on the increasing number of financial services companies and groups using the federal court system to oppose regulatory enforcement orders and new initiatives; the Conference of State Bank Supervisors is the most recent case as the group seeks to debate the OCC’s fintech charter; the CFPB has also been a notable defendant with opposition from Ocwen Financial and PHH Corp.; other cases have included MetLife and the American Bankers Association; according to H. Rodgin Cohen, chairman of Sullivan & Cromwell, “There’s an increased willingness to litigate,” and it seems the trend is likely to continue with industry changes resulting in new challenges and consequences.
