The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's (CFPB) first action – predicating UDAAPs on alleged violations of state law – recently survived a motion to dismiss in federal court.  The CFPB has asserted this novel legal theory against financial institutions, and their partners and service providers.  In this webinar, we will discuss the court's decision and its potential far-reaching impact, including the CFPB's position that nearly everyone doing business with consumer-finance companies (e.g., shareholders, senior lenders, strategic partners, service providers) must monitor their counterparties' compliance with state laws.
