English's lawsuit asks the court to impose its restraining order against Mulvaney after he dismissed his effort two weeks ago.
English sued Mulvaney, whom Trump appointed to head the CFPB until the Senate confirms a permanent replacement, and the president, alleging that the Dodd-Frank Act made her the acting director.
The deputy director argues in the new submission that Mulvaney is not eligible to run the CFPB due to the line of succession established at Dodd-Frank. English also asserts that Mulvaney's appointment violates the independence of the Federal Reserve since the CFPB was created within the Fed system and Mulvaney is a senior adviser to the White House.
Dodd-Frank, who established the CFPB, requests that the deputy director serve as interim director among the permanent directors confirmed by the Senate.
The architects of the law, former Senator Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) And former Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), They said last week that they wrote the provision explicitly to prevent the president from installing a new boss, acting or permanent, without Senate approval.
The White House and the Department of Justice argued that Trump had the power to replace the Dodd-Frank line of succession through the Federal Vacancy Reform Act. That law authorizes the president to appoint any member of the administration confirmed by the Senate to be an interim head of a department or agency.
