Who is running the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau? Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney showed up for the job Monday morning at the direction of President Trump, but the administration is facing a lawsuit from the bureau's acting director, Leandra English, who was given the position Friday by the outgoing director.

The legal dispute encapsulates a larger fight over the future of the consumer protection group, which was set up after the financial crisis. Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson gets the latest from NPR's Uri Berliner (@uberliner).

This segment aired on November 27, 2017.
