Maui County intends to sue Bank of America for allegedly failing to make good on a 1994 guarantee to create $150 million at house loans to native Hawaiians.The guarantee was allegedly dismissed until 1998, when NationsBank had been preparing to unite with Bank of America, according to a report from The Charlotte Observer. Cathy Bessant, community development executive in Nations Bank, who’s now chief operations and technology officer of Bank of America, met with Hawaiian elders consenting the bank would honor the promise made in 1994, regardless of the merger.Bessant’s assurances calmed worries that the toast would fall by the wayside, which in failed, for 2 decades.In 2012, the mind of the Hawaiian Homes Commission, which manages the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands, stated Bank of America did not really meet its devotion because the commission didn’t approve it, among other factors. A DHHL spokesman supported the 2012 correspondence is that the department’s present position.In 2018 and 2019, according to the report, the Attorney General investigated if it may pursue charges against the bank. Back in July 2020, Maui County hired a special counselor to sue Bank of America. The bank asked a federal court to reevaluate Maui’s litigation and issue a judgment the county does not have any promises it could make from the bank.”While we honor and understand that the issues confronted by the indigenous Hawaiian community, the county has approved a meritless lawsuit concerning a pledge made in 1994. The bank has fulfilled its pledge,” Bill Halldin, spokesperson for Bank of America spokesman, told the Observer.
