Daily Digest – April 13. CFPB Sues TransUnion, Former Executive; State Court Judge Grants Motion to Compel Arbitration in FDCPA Case

CFPB SUES TRANSUNION, FORMER EXECUTIVE FOR VIOLATING CONSENT ORDER

  • If you drew a Venn diagram of two circles, and used recent comments and announcements from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to fill them in, you would have one circle that was labeled “credit reporting agencies” and one circle that was labeled “repeat offenders.” Those are the two targets that the Bureau has put in its crosshairs.
