At Reuters’ On the Case blog (via How Appealing), Alison Frankel writes that “[o]n Tuesday, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau joined the Justice Department in a brief asking the U.S. Supreme Court to consider whether the CFPB’s structure is unconstitutional”; she notes that “the CFPB has never before argued that the statute creating the bureau is constitutionally flawed,” and that its new posture “places the bureau under a cloud of doubt that will linger until the Supreme Court resolves the question.” Additional commentary comes from Ian Millhiser at Vox and from Mark Joseph Stern at Slate.


  • At CNBC, Tucker Higgins reports that “Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fired back on Wednesday against critics who say the liberal justice should have retired while President Barack Obama was in office.”
  • At Supreme Court Brief (subscription required), Tony Mauro reports that a House “subcommittee on courts, intellectual property, and the Internet is gearing up for another hearing on a well-worn subject: the public’s right of access to the federal courts, including the Supreme Court.”
