Wells Fargo Sued For Redlining After Refused Deposit From Haitian-Born Man in SDNY

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Feb 26 – Ernst Valery sued Wells Fargo for discrimination, or "banking while black."        

   On February 7, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge J. Paul Oetken held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

 Valery, born in Haiti, was depositing a check for tax credit project but Wells Fargo refused to take it, instead "barraging him, in front of his wife, with a battery of interrogatives questioning his entitlement to the funds."  

 The SDNY action was stayed pending a motion in the Ninth Circuit. Now the stay is off, and papers are due in four, then three, then two weeks.

Later in February in the Northern District of California, Wells Fargo was sued for discrimination in lending, in Williams v. Wells Fargo, 22-cv-990 (complaint here)

The SDNY case is Valery v. Wells Fargo & Company et al., 21-cv-5464 (Oetken)
