NYDFS fintech charter lawsuit rumbles on

The New York Department of Financial Services’ lawsuit against the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) over the granting of fintech charter banking licenses is set to move forward after a court decision. Acting Financial Services superintendent Linda Lacewell said the court’s decision “is a resounding triumph for consumers and the regulated banking industry not just in New York, but across the nation.”

“The court has recognized the expertise of DFS and other state banking regulators and the significant role we play in regulating nonbank financial services, promoting innovative fintech products, helping to achieve a level playing field for regulated banking institutions, and most importantly, protecting consumers. DFS, which was created in response to the financial crisis, will continue to lead and fill any and all voids that misguided federal policy decisions create.”
