After Defendant Wells Fargo filed a denial of rehearing en banc from the Eleventh Circuit in support of its motion to bifurcate discovery, CCL, on behalf of the City of Sacramento, filed a response, pointing out that the denial had no precedential or persuasive impact and that the underlying decision contradicted Wells Fargo's position. In March, CCL argued against the bifurcation motion, which seeks to balkanize the case into small parts that would make it more difficult for the City to prove its allegations against the banking giant, accused of discriminatory mortgage lending. The issue remains pending before the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California (City of Sacramento v. Wells Fargo & Co.).
