HOW TRUMP JUDGES ARE DAMAGING

Consumer Protections

In FTC v. Credit Bureau Center, Trump Seventh Circuit judges Amy Coney Barrett, Michael Brennan, Michael Scudder, and Amy St. Eve refused to reconsider a decision prohibiting the FTC from seeking restitution for victims of consumer fraud. To reach the result, the Seventh Circuit overturned its own precedent and ignored opposite rulings from eight other circuits.


In Casillas v. Madison Ave. Associates Inc., Barrett wrote a decision denying consumers the ability to enforce their rights under federal law against abusive debt collection practices.


In Cigar Association of America v. FDA, Trump D.C. Circuit judge Gregory Katsas authored an opinion stating that the FDA improperly imposed a rule requiring cigar companies to label health risks on the packaging because it did not consider how warnings would affect the industry.
