Capital One Bank has filed suit against Port Arthur residents Brenda Conner and Eugene Finkley, seeking to collect more than $14,000 on a delinquent credit account.

The suit was filed May 16 in Jefferson County District Court.

In its suit, Capital One asserts the defendants entered into a credit account agreement with the bank.

The suit does not state when the account was opened or for what purposes, but does state that the defendants have ceased making payments on the account, thereby creating a default.

On Aug. 13 Capital One sent a letter demanding payment but the defendants still refuses to repay the debt.

As of Feb. 23, $14,057.95 remains due and owing on the account, the suit states.

Capital One is suing for actual damages, interest court costs and attorney's fees.

Carrollton attorney Michael Scott represents the lender.

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

Case No. A190-016
