Dodd-Frank Act Report
The Dodd Frank Report studies the resolution of financial institutions as required by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010.
In response to the global economic turmoil that began in late 2007, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010, Pub. L. No. 111-203 (2010), introduced a broad array of regulatory reforms in the financial sector. The reforms in Title II of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act are intended to mitigate risks posed by the failure of systemically important financial institutions. Title II provisions direct the Administrative Office of the United States Courts (AO) to study the resolution of these institutions and report on its findings.
The AO submitted its first three annual reports to Congress pursuant to 12 U.S.C. § 5382(e) on July 21, 2011 (First Report), July 17, 2012 (Second Report), and July 19, 2013 (Third Report). Beginning in July 2015, the AO is required to submit reports every five years.
