The city of Philadelphia files a lawsuit against Wells Fargo

The lawsuit claims Wells Fargo discriminated against African Americans and Latinos for more than 12 years by intentionally driving them into higher-cost mortgages.

It also claims those lending practices caused foreclosures to increase and resulted in the loss of vital tax revenue for the city.

However, this is not the first time the bank has been accused of discriminatory lending practices.
