“CFPB signals pullback on discrimination cases “

This article from the American Banker discusses Acting Director Mulvaney's intention to re-examine how the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau enforces the Equal Credit Opportunity Act, which prohibits discrimination in lending. "Mulvaney's comments suggest the CFPB may make it harder for protected groups, including minorities and women, to claim they were adversely impacted by discriminatory practices. It is the first time that the CFPB has signaled publicly that it plans to clarify the language of Regulation B, which is intended to prevent consumers from being discriminated against in any aspect of a credit transaction."
