Ronald Yaffe of Sarasota is fighting stage-four kidney disease, hoping for a transplant, so he will need thousands of dollars each month for drugs. But when he went to Wells Fargo with $11,800 in cashier’s checks, the bank refused to honor them, the Sarasota Herald-Tribune reports. So Yaffe took the bank to court, and the judge sided with the patient. But the bank has appealed.
