A federal judge denied a request by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s second-in-command Leandra English to block White House budget chief Mick Mulvaney from taking over as the legal interim head of the watchdog agency.

In his resignation letter, former CFPB director Richard Cordray named English as his heir apparent, but President Donald Trump countered later with Mulvaney as his nominee.
