Church Church Hittle and Antrim (CCHA Law) is pleased to highlight CCHA Law associate Sloan Schafer, who was recently published in the IU Robert H. McKinney School of Law’s Indiana Law Review.

His article discusses the ramifications of the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Seila Law LLC v. Consumer Fin. Prot. Bureau, where the Court determined that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (the “CFPB”) “for-cause” removal restriction of its director violated the U.S. Constitution’s separation of powers doctrine. The decision put the CFPB's actions at risk of being invalidated, and Sloan's article argues that the U.S. Supreme Court should resurrect the de facto officer doctrine to protect the validity of the CFPB.


CCHA Law is proud to feature Sloan as a thought leader in business law and newest member of our Business Services practice group. To read Sloan’s full article, “A Case for the Extension of the De Facto Officer Doctrine”, visit the Indiana Law Review here.
