A U.S. Appeals Court has formally sent out a whistleblower claim versus Wells Fargo back to a lower court for reconsideration, in the most recent legal trouble for the San Francisco-based bank.

In their fit, previous workers Paul Bishop and Robert Kraus declared that Wells Fargo and predecessor Wachovia made incorrect claims and declarations to get payments from federal companies under numerous bailout programs throughout the monetary crisis. They’re looking for damages on behalf of the federal government.

In February, the United States Supreme Court revived the case in August 2016 when it left a judgment by the U.S. Appeals Court for the Second Circuit that had verified a lower court’s choice to dismiss the case. The case switched on a June 2016 Supreme Court judgment that analyzed an element of the federal whistleblower law called the United States False Claims Act.

Today, the Appeals Court based in Manhattan formally sent out the case back to U.S. District Court in Brooklyn for “additional procedures.”.

Wells Fargo has stated the case lacks benefit. “We eagerly anticipate specifying our legal position with the District Court,” Wells spokesperson Elise Wilkinson stated.

The choice comes as Wells Fargo is still having a hard time to recuperate from a sales scandal that appeared in 2015 over accusations that its staff members developed phony accounts to meet aggressive sales objective. The bank, which has a significant work Charlotte center, still deals with a federal examination over the matter in addition to probes connected to its auto-lending practices.

Whistleblowers Bishop and Kraus initially submitted their suit on behalf of the federal government in 2011 in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York. They declared the bank defrauded U.S. companies that lent money and offered other help to Wachovia in the monetary crisis. Wells purchased Wachovia in 2008 as the Charlotte bank bordered on failure.
