A judge on Wednesday refused for the second time to block the Trump administration’s appointment of White House budget director Mick Mulvaney as the temporary leader of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, setting the stage for a Washington federal appeals court to take up the power struggle.

The decision by U.S. District Judge Timothy Kelly, a Trump administration appointee, marked another setback for the deputy director, Leandra English, in her quest to lead the CFPB while the White House moves to install a Senate-confirmed successor to Richard Cordray, the agency’s former head. Mulvaney already has moved to solidify his leadership, selecting his command staff and ordering a review of pending cases.
