An attempt by an Obama-era official to stop the Trump administration from appointing an interim director at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has failed.

On Sunday, Leandra English, the deputy director of the bureau who was appointed by the former director of the CFPB on his way out the door, filed a lawsuit.

English, who filed the complaint in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, sought a temporary restraining order blocking President Donald Trump’s choice for interim director, Mick Mulvaney, from running the agency — leaving her in charge until a permanent director is confirmed by the Senate.
