Empire Justice Center Statement on CFPB Director Cordray Stepping Down

For Immediate Release

November 16, 2017


From Ruhi Maker, Senior Attorney at Empire Justice Center and member of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Consumer Advisory Board:

“Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Director Richard Cordray has been a beacon for millions of Americans harmed by abusive financial services practices.  Director Cordray has protected homeowners in foreclosure, championed the legal rights of consumers pursued unfairly by debt collectors, students burdened by unaffordable debt, and millions of credit card users.  9/11 first responders benefited as money unfairly taken from them was returned, an action near and dear to the heart of every New Yorker. 

Empire Justice Center thanks Director Cordray for standing up to Wall Street, and we look forward to continuing our work with the CFPB and its new Director.”
