The California Credit Union League is suing the govern- ment for not letting institutions in its state add customers who don't share a common bond with their core members.

The trade group charges in its Nov. 5 suit that the National Credit Union Administration lacks the authority to order institutions to stop adding members from groups that are within their fields of membership. It also claims that NCUA deprived credit unions of their rights because it didn't give the industry a chance to comment before issuing its order.
