Although the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau continued to draw significant attention in 2014, many other important developments affected the consumer financial services industry as well. In this webinar, we focus on key developments from the last year involving other federal agencies, state regulators and attorneys general, and consumer class actions and other litigation.


  • Operation Choke Point and other federal attempts to indirectly prohibit or limit lawful activities
  • Continued aggressive rulemaking and enforcement by state regulators and AGs in New York and other states
  • Superpriority HOA and condo liens in Nevada, Washington, D.C., and other jurisdictions
  • Increasing scrutiny of class action settlements, including game-changing decisions by the Seventh Circuit, and important Class Action Fairness Act developments
  • Critical issues being addressed by federal appellate courts, including standing and Rule 68 offers of judgment in class actions
  • Jesinoski and other developments under TILA and other key federal statutes
  • Settlements of lender-placed insurance, TCPA, and other class actions
  • Fair lending developments, including the U.S. Supreme Court’s grant of certiorari in Inclusive Communities
  • Continued FDCPA and FCRA enforcement by the FTC
  • Class action litigation trends and theories likely to emerge in 2015
