Warren asks CEOs about arbitration rule; ADP chief calls Ackman 'spoiled brat'

Elizabeth Warren is asking large financial institutions to weigh in on the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's arbitration rule. "If your lobbyists are taking such strong positions against the rule, is there a reason both you and your bank have been unwilling to take a public position?" Warren wrote in a letter addressed to CEOs at JPMorgan Chase & Co., Bank of America Corp., Wells Fargo & Co., Citigroup Inc., U.S. Bancorp, PNC Financial Services Group Inc., TD Group US Holdings LLC, Capital One Financial Corp., HSBC North America Holdings Inc., Charles Schwab Corp., BB&T Corp., SunTrust Bank, Barclays US LLC, Ally Financial Inc., American Express Co. and Citizens Financial Group Inc.

In an interview with CNBC, Automatic Data Processing Inc. President and CEO Carlos Rodriguez said Pershing Square Capital Management LP CEO William Ackman reminds him of a "spoiled brat in school asking a teacher for an extension for their homework." Pershing Square had taken an 8.3% stake in the fintech company, and Ackman wanted an extension on the deadline to nominate members to the ADP board. The deadline was Aug. 10, but Ackman sought an additional 30 to 45 days. On Monday the hedge fund nominated three directors to the company's board, including Ackman himself. Previously Pershing Square aimed to nominate five directors and push out Rodriguez as CEO.

Walter Investment Management Corp. said "substantial doubt" has been raised over its future. The specialty lender expects to continue for at least the next 12 months.
