Last night, President Donald Trump nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill Justice Anthony Kennedy's seat on the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS).
Regarding his opinions on relevant banking matters, Kavanaugh held that entities directly regulated by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) could challenge the constitutionality of the Bureau's design in 2015. The following year, Kavanaugh found that the CFPB's design was, in fact, unconstitutional; he likewise ruled that the CFPB Director could be removed by the President. This January, however, the D.C. Circuit reversed that 2016 ruling (Kavanaugh, of course, wrote a dissent).
