Citibank has filed five separate lawsuits against Beaumont residents it says failed to make payments on their credit cards.
In its first complaint, Citibank claims Bonnie S. Brooks owes it $22,338.38 in unpaid principal balance as of Feb. 25. In its second suit, Citibank says Jose L. Maravilla owes it $21,677.98 in unpaid principal balance as of Feb. 25. In its third complaint, Citibank alleges Mark F. Horton failed to pay $28,397.96 in principal interest.
In its fourth suit, Citibank claims Rita Hurt owes it $18,482 in unpaid principal balance as of Feb. 25. And in its final complaint, Citibank says Sandra A. Chevis owes it $10,926.73 in unpaid principal balance as of Feb. 25.
Despite Citibank's repeated requests, the defendants have failed to pay the money they owe the company, according to the complaints it filed April 6 in Jefferson County District Court.
In addition to the money it says it is owed, Citibank is seeking pre-judgment interest at the maximum rate allowed by law, attorney's fees, costs, post-judgment interest at 5 percent per annum and other relief to which it may be entitled.
It will be represented by Michael J. Scott, Teri Stewart Mace and Judith Morgan of Carrollton.
Brooks' and Chevis' cases have been assigned to Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court; Maravilla's case has been assigned to Judge Gary Sanderson, 60th District Court; and Horton's and Hurt's cases have been assigned to Judge Bob Wortham, 58th District Court.
