Federal judge issues injunction against Bank of America after handling of account freezes

A San Francisco federal judge has issued an injunction against Bank of America after its handling of account freezes for those getting unemployment money. The bank distributes the debit cards loaded with unemployment funds for the state employment development department. In the height of fraud against EDD last fall, Bank of America began freezing hundreds of thousands of accounts, many with legitimate unemployment claims. A San Francisco woman filed for the injunction saying Bank of America was using computer systems to analyze accounts and freeze them without investigating properly. See more in the video above.
