New York City's 'responsible banking' law survives court challenge

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 09/10/2014 - 01:58
By Jonathan Stempel NEW YORK (Reuters) - A federal judge has refused to block enforcement of a 2012 New York City law designed to ensure that banks holding the city's deposits document how well they meet the needs of low- and moderate-income neighborhoods. District Judge Katherine Polk Failla dismissed a lawsuit by the New York Bankers Association (NYBA), which said the law gave the city illegal power to regulate banks and conflicted with federal and state law. In a 33-page decision, Failla said the bankers group had lacked standing to bring their October 2013 lawsuit because former Mayor Michael Bloomberg was refusing to enforce the law at the time, giving it "dead-letter" status. NYBA has more than 130 members, including Bank of America Corp, Citigroup Inc, Goldman Sachs Group Inc JPMorgan Chase & Co and Wells Fargo & Co, with in excess of $10 trillion of assets.
