Banks Ordered to Cease-and-Desist

Recent regulatory actions against financial institutions

Oct. 11, 2010

By staff

Banks have faced a multitude of regulatory actions lately. The number of cease-and-desist orders recently issued by federal banking regulators have been strong, though several such orders have also been terminated. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. has a new name for cease-and-desist orders.

Regulatory actions against financial institutions by the FDIC declined to 63 matters in August from July's 76. A year earlier, the FDIC reported just 48 matters.

The FDIC has stopped calling final orders issued pursuant to Section 8(b), 12 U.S.C. §1818(b) "cease and desist." Its latest list of monthly actions now refers to such orders as "consent orders." The FDIC has gone so far as to amend its previously issued announcement for July actions, replacing the phrase "cease-and-desist" with "consent orders."

The following cease-and-desist orders and "consent" orders were recently issued.
