Sovern Pens NY Daily News Essay, Draws Attention from the CFPB, WaPo, and Salon

The New York Daily News published Professor Jeff Sovern’s op-ed, The COVID liability charade: Mitch McConnell’s demand is built on dishonest claims, on December 15. Salon quoted the op-ed on December 20. On December 18, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) published a debt collection rule in which it quoted from one article Sovern co-authored, and cited another. On January 5, the Washington Post published an essay by columnist Katrina vanden Heuvel, editor and publisher of The Nation, in which she referred to a piece Sovern co-authored with Hofstra Law Professor Norman I. Silber as putting forth a “big idea.”
