Wells Fargo Says It's Investigating Information Sent to Attorney

Wells Fargo & Co., the San Francisco-based lender, said it is looking into whether any private information was accidentally provided to an attorney as part of a lawsuit.

Information about tens of thousands of the bank’s wealthiest clients was sent in error to a lawyer involved in a defamation lawsuit against a bank employee, the New York Times reported on Friday. The newspaper quoted the plaintiff’s attorney, Aaron Zeisler, as saying his client planned to keep the information “secure and confidential.”
