Lawsuit Filed Against CFPB
Morgan Drexen and Connecticut attorney Kimberly A. Pisinski have filed a lawsuit in federal court against the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). The lawsuit contends the CFPB overstepped its authority by asking Ms. Pisinski and Morgan Drexen to hand over sensitive and privileged information related to thousands of Ms. Pisinski’s clients who are considering bankruptcy. Morgan Drexen and Pisinski consider these documents, and the information contained therein, to be protected by the Attorney-Client privilege.
Morgan Drexen believes it is improper and unethical for the CFPB to “data mine” the personal and confidential information of financially distressed consumers considering bankruptcy. Morgan Drexen and Ms. Pisinski are committed to fighting for the privacy of American consumers. For more details about the lawsuit, please see the news release below.
