Ally Financial is suing Beaumont local Jerry Colbert, seeking to collect more than $15,000 from a delinquent car note.
The suit was filed Jan. 3 in Jefferson County District Court.
According to the suit, on Nov. 18, 2011, Colbert purchased a vehicle from Sour Lake Motor Co. and executed a retail installment sales contract for $16,606.24.
“Defendant failed to perform the obligations under the contract and is now wholly in default,” the suit states. “Although plaintiff made demand on defendant for payment, defendant failed and/or refused to pay the indebtedness owed under the contract.”
As of Dec. 27, a balance of $15,941.97 remains due, the suit states.
Ally Financial accuses the defendant of breaching his contract.
The plaintiff is suing for actual damages, court costs and attorney’s fees.
Dallas attorney Kimberly Harris of Beasley, Hightower & Hartmann represents the plaintiff.
Judge Milton Shuffield, 136th District Court, is assigned to the case.
Case No. D193-785
