How Equifax Could Change Arbitration

Congress, especially Jeb Hensarling, who has long been at odds with CFPB Director Richard Cordray, has threatened to invoke the Congressional Review Act in order to overturn it. Many didn’t expect the ruling to go further.However, Equifax may have given the rule new legs to stand on, given the way things have played out in recent days. First, according to the LA Times, after the news broke of the data breach, the company offered a year of free credit monitoring with the stipulation class action suits were forbidden.Once the news broke that this was the case, Equifax amended their statement, saying enrollment in the free credit monitoring program ““does not waive any rights to take legal action.” They also said that enrolling in the free credit monitoring program would not automatically sign consumers up for the paid program.Keith Noreika, the acting Comptroller of the Currency, had asked Cordray to delay the implementation of the ruling so the OCC could assess how it would affect the banking industry. Cordray was not receptive to the request.It remains unclear as to how Equifax’s current slip-up will affect the success of the CFPB’s arbitration rule.

Amanda Seyfried Talks Conquering Stage Fright with The Way We Get By

first_img The Way We Get By Related Shows View Comments Amanda Seyfried may light up the big screen in films like Mean Girls, Mamma Mia! and Les Miserables, but as she’s told us in the past, that doesn’t make being on stage any easier. The film star, who is currently making her off-Broadway debut in Neil LaBute’s The Way We Get By, suffers from stage fright continuously. But when she stopped by Late Night to chat with Seth Meyers, she had a message for all the kids: “Children, don’t run away from your fears. Fight ‘em!” Despite the jitters, she’s enjoying her time on stage, but wishes audiences would stop talking (and eating pretzels) during the show. Take a look at the interview below, in which she also talks about her, erm, nauseating cameo in the upcoming film Pan, then catch The Way We Get By at Second Stage Theatre.

Premier League, EFL and PFA to discuss wage deferral agreement: BBC

first_imgTopics : Premier League and English Football League clubs are seeking agreement on a collective wage deferral plan at a meeting with the Professional Footballers’ Association on Wednesday, the BBC has reported.The report said the proposal is one option to help clubs safeguard their financial future during the coronavirus shutdown.English football has been suspended until at least April 30 and league authorities have said they will resume action “only when it is safe and conditions allow”. Players at Championship leaders Leeds United have volunteered to take a wage deferral, while Birmingham City have asked some players to take a 50% pay cut over the next four months.Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has called on Premier League players and managers to help English football deal with the crisis.”We have seen some of the biggest clubs in the world such as Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Juventus take steps to reduce their costs,” said Levy, who revealed Spurs had imposed a 20% pay cut on 550 non-playing staff in April and May.”We hope the discussions between the Premier League, PFA and LMA (League Managers Association) will result in players and coaches doing their bit for the football ecosystem.”Jonas Baer-Hoffmann, general secretary of FIFPRO, has praised the players who agreed to take pay cuts but warned that the example should not be used to pressure those at smaller clubs.”We can only appeal to common sense that those measures taken by the elite clubs and players cannot just be transferred downwards,” he added. last_img read more

Hughes sweet on Conor triumph

first_img Hughes said: “He looks the one they all have to beat to me. What really pleased me about that last day was that it was a really good time. “If we’d beaten Willie’s horse (Diakali) and it was a poor time, people could have said it wasn’t much of a race, but they can’t when the time is good. “That race is usually a good trial for the Triumph and we’re very happy with him.” Our Conor is a general 5-1 favourite for the juvenile championship race. Dessie Hughes believes Our Conor is the one to beat in the JCB Triumph Hurdle at Cheltenham next month. Press Associationcenter_img Unbeaten in three races over timber, the four-year-old was a hugely impressive winner of a Grade One at Leopardstown earlier this month, beating two from the Willie Mullins yard who had won both their starts over hurdles previously. Also well behind him was John Ferguson’s Ruacana, a Grade One winner at Chepstow, giving the form a really solid look. last_img read more
