More than a dozen cities are involved in a complaint against Charlotte-based Bank of America, accusing the company of discriminating against foreclosed properties.
It was exactly a year ago the National Fair Housing Alliance filed the complaint.
It said that Bank of America kept better care of foreclosed homes in white neighborhoods, but not in black or Latino neighborhoods.
The National Fair Housing Alliance presented new evidence of the discrimination.
It said five fair housing organizations evaluated the maintenance of Bank of America owned properties in 18 different cities now involved in the complaint.
It looked at various issues like broken windows and doors, water damage and overgrown lawns.
The organizations found properties in minority communities were 4.5 times more likely to have 15 or more maintenance issues than homes in white communities.
Channel 9 contacted Bank of America for a statement about the new evidence.
"We apply uniform practices to the management and marketing of vacant bank-owned properties across the U.S., regardless of their location. Any suggestion to the contrary is simply untrue," the bank stated.
