On April 4, 2023, WLF filed an amicus brief urging the Fifth Circuit to affirm in part and reverse a part an injunction stopping an FDIC administrative proceeding. WLF’s brief showed how the District Court had jurisdiction over the case. The brief also explained the constitutional problems with the administrative proceedings. Both FDIC board members and FDIC administrative law judges enjoy unconstitutional for-cause removal protections. Finally, the brief outlined why federal courts can grant relief on the plaintiff’s claims that the FDIC structure is unconstitutional.
