Wells Fargo sued by DACA recipients for lending discrimination
In Peña v. Wells Fargo, Case No. 19-cv-04065 (N.D. Cal.), filed on July 16, 2019, Outten & Golden LLP represents an individual with DACA status challenging Wells Fargo's discriminatory eligibility policy as to auto loans and also seeking Wells Fargo’s compliance with the federal Equal Credit Opportunity Act, which requires a lender to provide an accurate written explanation for the reasons for a denial. Outten & Golden LLP and the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF) also represent individuals with DACA status in an ongoing lending discrimination class action lawsuit against Wells Fargo, Perez v. Wells Fargo, Case No. 17-cv-454 (N.D. Cal.), filed in January 2017. In Perez, six individuals with DACA status are challenging Wells Fargo’s discriminatory policies that make DACA recipients ineligible for student loans, unsecured credit cards, personal loans, and small business loans.
