NEW ORLEANS – An Orleans Parish man claims that he lent his credit cards to a woman who charged over $40,000.
Calvin Madison filed a lawsuit against Nicol W. Gooden in Orleans Parish Civil District Court, alleging breach of contract.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff and defendant were in communication in April 2015 when the defendant told the plaintiff about her sons' incarceration. The suit states that the defendant agreed to pay the plaintiff back if he would lend her funds. The plaintiff gave the defendant three credit cards to use, and the defendant allegedly charged $45,000, ceased to speaking about repayment and failed to pay the minimum amount due.
In September 2016, the plaintiff contacted the defendant about paying the cards off and she had been paying the minimum amount but failed to pay the balance in full. The defendant allegedly later said she would use funds from an income tax return but the defendant has failed to pay the balance.
The defendant is accused of breaching a contract.
The plaintiff seeks all reasonable damages, court costs, attorney fees and all appropriate relief. The plaintiff is represented by attorney Dennis W. Moore in New Orleans.
The case has been assigned to Division J Judge Cherrell S. Taplin.
