New Jersey Bank Agrees To Pay Up $13M After Allegedly Depriving Black And Hispanic Borrowers Of Loans


Lakeland Bank has 40 branch locations across Essex, Somerset, and Union counties, most of which are in predominately white neighborhoods.

“The avoidance went beyond brick and mortar locations,” Sellinger said, according to NJ.com. “Lakeland unlawfully avoided serving neighborhoods that were Black or Hispanic while serving nearby white majority suburbs.”
