All depositors, including those with deposits in excess of the FDIC's insurance limits, will have their accounts switched to Mutual of Omaha Bank and will be covered for all their funds, the federal agency said.

Echoing recurring complaints about mortgage lenders, authorities in Arizona and Nevada have filed civil fraud lawsuits accusing Bank of America Corp. of misleading troubled borrowers into expecting loan modifications that never came.
