Cuomo v. Clearing House
No. 08-453


    Andrew M. Cuomo, Attorney General of New York v. The Clearing House Association, L.L.C., et al.


    Administrative Law, National Bank Act


    12 U.S.C. § 484(a), a provision of the National Bank Act, prohibits the exercise of
    "visitorial powers" as to national banks, except where those powers are authorized
    by federal law, vested in the courts of justice, or exercised by Congress or a House
    or committee thereof. The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency has issued a
    regulation (12 C.F.R. § 7.4000) interpreting § 484(a) to preempt state enforcement
    of state laws against national banks, even when the state laws are not substantively
    preempted. The questions presented are:

    1. Whether 12 C.F.R. § 7.4000 is entitled to judicial deference under Chevron
    U.S.A., Inc. v. Natural Resources Defense Council, Inc., 467 U.S. 837 (1984).

    2. Whether 12 C.F.R. § 7.4000 is invalid because it is inconsistent with the
    authoritative construction of the National Bank Act by this Court in First National
    Bank in St. Louis v. Missouri, 263 U.S. 640 (1924).
