Capital One sues Beaumont attorney over delinquent account
Beaumont attorney Charlton P. Hornsby, a man accustomed to filing lawsuits, has been sued by Capital One National Association.
Alleging Hornsby owes more than $50,000 on a delinquent account, Capital One filed suit against the attorney on Dec. 31 in Jefferson County District Court.
According to the lawsuit, Capital One advanced Hornsby funds on a small business credit account. Capital One claims that on Aug. 5 it sent a letter to Hornsby demanding payment in full of the account. However, no further payments have been made, the suit states.
“As of Dec. 5, 2012, there continues to be owed … an unpaid balance of 51,120.44,” the suit states.
Capital One is accusing Hornsby of breach of contract, and claims it is entitled to recover the account balance and all court costs, including attorney’s fees.
Carrollton attorney Michael Scott represents the company.
Judge Milton Shuffield, 136th District Court, is assigned to the case.
Case No. D193-780
