CHICAGO — A man is suing Fifth Third Bank N.A. and The Roth Morgan Firm Corp., alleging misrepresentation in debt collection.
Bradley Keith Kaemmerer, of Wheaton, filed a complaint on May 18 in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois against the defendants alleging they attempted to collect a discharged debt from the plaintiff.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, in 2014, he received a collection letter despite having filed for bankruptcy. The plaintiff holds Fifth Third Bank and The Roth Morgan Firm responsible because they allegedly sent a collection letter to the plaintiff despite being notified that his debt was discharged in bankruptcy.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks actual damages, punitive damages, court costs and any further relief this court grants. He is represented by Nathan C. Volheim of Sulaiman Law Group Ltd. in Oak Brook.
