Supreme Court Briefs

  • Cuomo v. The Clearing House Association, L.L.C., 08-453

    This case addresses the power of the Attorney General to investigate possible racial discrimination in the residential real estate lending practices of several national banks and their operating subsidiaries. The federal Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and a trade group of national banks sued to prohibit the investigation of four member banks, claiming that federal law preempts the Attorney General from investigating discrimination in their lending practices. The district court and the Second Circuit enjoined the investigation and the Supreme Court agreed to hear the case.
