Conference Call

Featured Speakers:
Todd J. Zywicki
John C. Eastman
Noel J. Francisco


Given the breaking news, George Mason Law School Professor Todd Zywicki, Chapman University School of Law Professor John Eastman, and Mr. Noel Francisco, a Jones Day Partner who argued the case in the D.C. Circuit Court, will discuss today’s D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals decision in the Noel Canning v. NLRB case, in which a unanimous three judge panel held the recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board unconstitutional.  CFPB Director Richard Cordray was appointed at the same time by the President using the same recess appointment authority.

Professor Todd Zywicki will also discuss his recently published article, "Policy-Based Evidence-Making at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau."  In the article, he first describes the mortgage rules very recently adopted by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).  He goes on to question whether the rationale for the new rules is supported by factual evidence.  Finding they are not, he calls for greater oversight of the CFPB.


  • Dr. John C. Eastman, Chapman University School of Law
  • Mr. Noel J. Francisco, Jones Day
  • Prof. Todd J. Zywicki, George Mason University School of Law

Call begins at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
