A legal challenge has been filed against the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act in U.S. District Court in Washington, DC today. Former White House Counsel C. Boyden Gray is representing the Texas community bank filing the suit. Back in 2010, Boyden Gray and attorney John Shu co-wrote a white paper discussing the constitutionality of Dodd-Frank. Boyden Gray also participated on a panel discussion on the same topic at our 2010 National Lawyers Convention. The white paper and the video can both be found below as well as links to additional papers and multimedia related to Dodd-Frank.
