FIA Card Services has filed a lawsuit against Beaumont resident Robert Bushnell, alleging he refuses to pay a credit card balance.

The suit was filed Oct. 17 in Jefferson County District Court.

Court records show that on June 24 FIA Card Services sent a letter to Bushnell demanding payment in full of the account. However, no further payments have been made.

"As of Sept. 21, 2011 there continues to be owed ... an unpaid balance of $13,215.48," the suit states, adding that Bushnell breached his contract.

FIA Card Services claims that it is entitled to recover the account balance and all court costs, including attorney's fees.

Carrollton attorney Michael Scott represents the company.

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

Case No. A191-213
