SDNY COURTHOUSE, Feb 7 – 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.
The case is Valery v. Wells Fargo & Company et al., 21-cv-5464 (Oetken)
