Will Barnett Bag A Bevy Of Banks?

ON NOV. 8, THE COMPTROLLER of the Currency approved Barnett Bank's purchase of 34 Florida branches from Glendale Federal Bank. The problem: Barnett faces scrutiny from the Justice Dept., which is looking into allegations of discriminatory lending practices. Although the comptroller gave Barnett a clean bill of health for its loans from July, 1993 through July, 1994, Justice is examining an earlier period. Justice's civil rights chief, Deval L.
