The deputy director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), Leandra English, is suing President Trump in order to block Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney from taking over as acting director of the agency.

English filed a complaint Sunday night against Trump and Mulvaney, whom the president nominated to be CFPB’s interim leader.

{mosads}English claims that she is the rightful acting director of the CFPB and that the provisions of the Dodd-Frank Act that lay out the CFPB’s line of succession supersede the Federal Vacancies Reform Act of 1998, which Trump used to nominate Mulvaney.

The federal vacancies act empowers the president to nominate any Senate-confirmed administration official as acting director of a department or agency.

English is asking the court to declare that Dodd-Frank’s line of succession supersedes the vacancies act and to ban Trump from appointing another acting director.

Read English’s complaint below.
