A cornerstone of Dodd-Frank regulatory reform is a provision that empowers regulators to designate certain financial institutions as “systemically risky,” subjecting those institutions to additional regulatory framework. In April, a federal judge sided with MetLife, Inc. in challenging its designation. This program discussed the legal challenge and the future of the “systematically important financial institution” program in light of administrative law principles, financial institutions policy and previewed future challenges to this provision of Dodd-Frank.
