Settlement reached in suit alleging Wells Fargo outed victim

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — An out-of-court settlement has been reached in a lawsuit alleging that Wells Fargo and one of its mortgage bankers in Mankato mistakenly outed a family under victim protection.
Plaintiffs’ attorney Randy Knutson told the Star Tribune on Monday that the sides came to a “fair and reasonable settlement.” Terms were not disclosed.
A spokesman for San Francisco-based Wells Fargo says the lawsuit “has been settled on terms that are acceptable to both sides.”
According to the lawsuit, the victim’s mother applied for a mortgage on a new home in November 2016, four months after her daughter was sexually assaulted.
The suit alleged mail bearing the mother’s name from Wells Fargo and from others targeting her as a new homeowner began showing up at what was supposed to be a secret location.
The mother and daughter had enrolled in Minnesota’s Safe at Home program, designed to protect survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and others who fear for their safety.
