Toyota has filed suit against the Sour Lake resident it claims defaulted on his car loan payments.

Toyota Motor Credit Corp. claims defendant Michael Culver entered into an agreement on April 5, 2008, to make 60 payments of $350.13 per month beginning in May 2008 for a loan on a 2004 Dodge Dakota.

However, Culver has failed to make five monthly payments as of Oct. 20, according to the complaint filed Oct. 28 in Jefferson County District Court.

Although Toyota has demanded Culver turn the vehicle over to it, Culver has refused to do so, the suit states.

Toyota alleges breach of contract against Culver.

In its complaint, Toyota is seeking possession of the Dakota and all amounts Culver owes it, plus attorney's fees, post-judgment interest at the highest rate allowed by law, costs and other relief the court deems just.

Joel W. Mohrman and Anderson L. Cao of McGlinchey Stafford in Houston will be representing it.

The case has been assigned to Judge Bob Wortham, 58th District Court.

Jefferson County District Court case number: A188-700
