LOS ANGELES (CBS/AP) — Bank closings for the year have hit 143 — two more than the number of U.S. banks that failed in all of 2009 — with regulators shutting down one bank in the San Fernando Valley and another one in Westminster.
The FDIC seized Western Commercial Bank in Woodland Hills, with $98.6 million in assets, and First Vietnamese American Bank in Westminster, with assets of $48 million.
