In a lawsuit filed Friday in U.S. District Court, the Los Angeles city attorney alleged the nation's largest bank "has engaged in a continuous pattern and practice of mortgage discrimination in Los Angeles since at least 2004 by imposing different terms or conditions on a discriminatory and legally prohibited basis."


"L.A. continues to suffer from the foreclosure crisis -- from blight in our neighborhoods to diminished revenue for basic City services," L.A. City Atty. Mike Feuer said in a statement. "We're fighting to hold those we allege are responsible to account and to help bring back every community in our City."

Late last year, Feuer filed similar suits against Wells Fargo & Co., Citigroup Inc. and Bank of America Corp. Those banks, some of the nation's largest, have all denied the charges.
