Marketplace Morning Report for Friday, August 9, 2013

The bank is reportedly ready to admit wrongdoing over the ill-fated trades. As many children head back to school across the country, school districts are facing 5.2 percent cuts in funding mandated by the sequester. That adds up to more than $1.5 billion. We'll take a look at how schools and students will be impacted. And, if you're a tenant facing eviction, chances are you'll lose in court. Most landlords hire attorneys, and most tenants go unrepresented. But a pilot program in California might change all of that. It provides free counsel to low income tenants, and it could actually save taxpayers money.
