LITTLE ROCK – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge issued a statement regarding the United States District Court for the District of Columbia’s decision to side with President Donald J. Trump’s appointment of Mick Mulvaney to lead the Consumer Financial Protection Division.
“Today’s Federal court ruling halted Richard Cordray’s political agenda and blatant disregard for the rule of law. The reinforcement of the President’s appointment of Mick Mulvaney provides the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau the opportunity to genuinely protect consumers within the confines of the law and guaranteeing access to a free and fair marketplace.”
