    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."
