Who bought out western federal savings and loan?

Bank of America
If you are referring to the Western Federal Savings & Loan headquartered in Marina del Rey, CA, BofA did not buy them out. They were taken over by the OTS in 1983 and subsequently, through a series of law suits, proved they were not unhealthy and did not deserve a government take over. By then, however, it was too late to reopen as the OTS sold off all the assets and branches. What a shame - it was a great company that most employees, to this day, say was the best company they ever worked for.
