    City Hall scores in predatory lending battle against Wells Fargo
    A federal judge in Philadelphia has rejected Wells Fargo's bid to dismiss the city's lawsuit accusing the bank of predatory lending practices targeting black and Hispanic borrowers, Reuters reports. The city claims that the lender's alleged "reverse redlining" violated the federal Fair Housing Act; Wells Fargo argued that Philadelphia "could not show that bank policies had a disparate impact on minority borrowers."

    Temple stadium moves forward, despite neighborhood opposition
    Temple University announced today that it is taking the next step forward on a controversial 35,000 seat stadium in the heart of North Philadelphia. The university plans to file proposals to the City Planning Commission for zoning tweaks, road closures, and a new Special Services District that will pave the way for a massive sports complex in the midst of a largely residential area.
