Justice Kavanaugh: Recuse yourself from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau case

Justice Kavanaugh: Recuse yourself from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau case

We urge you to recuse yourself from Seila Law LLC v. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. You have already ruled on the underlying legal question in this case in PHH Corp. v. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The law states that “no judge shall hear or determine an appeal from the decision of a case or issue tried by him.” We urge you to recuse yourself from this case because it is clear you cannot be impartial.

Why is this important?

The Supreme Court will soon hear a case that threatens the existence of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, an independent consumer watchdog championed by Elizabeth Warren and established as part of the Dodd-Frank Act.

We are calling on Justice Kavanaugh to recuse himself from the case because he previously ruled on the underlying legal question, making it clear he is not impartial.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau protects us from scams and predatory lenders. A payday lender has brought a case that threatens the existence of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau -- and Justice Kavanaugh is poised to help the payday lender win. We can’t let its existence be threatened by a man who faced 83 ethics complaints.
