WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency has named Donna Murphy, a former Justice Department official, to head its consumer law division.

Murphy was named Wednesday as director for Community and Consumer Law and will oversee a division within the OCC's law department involving consumer protection, fair lending, and community reinvestment and development issues.

She will report to the agency's Deputy Chief Counsel Daniel Stipano.

"Donna's extensive experience in complex regulatory and policy issues in housing and fair lending enforcement makes her an excellent choice for OCC's Director for Community and Consumer Law," Stipano said in a new release.

During Murphy's tenure at the DOJ, she spent the last several years as principal deputy chief for the Housing and Civil Enforcement Section within the Civil Rights Division. In early 2011, she was among three nominees by President Obama for a seat in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia. But only Murphy's appointment was stalled by Republicans, namely Sen. Jim DeMint, who rejected her nomination last summer and challenged the president's recess appointment process. DeMint left in January to head a Washington think tank, the Heritage Foundation, as president-elect.

Murphy worked within the DOJ's civil rights division for more than 20 years.
