Actor Gary Dourdan has filed a lawsuit against officials at a California bank for allegedly neglecting to offer proper financial assistance prior to foreclosing his home, reports E! Online.
The one-time “CSI” star, who fell on hard times in 2010, reached out to Union Bank for mortgage assistance after struggling to meet the $5,000-a-month payments on his Los Angeles home.
But Dourdan claims the banks were slow to offer him a relief plan and he fell behind on his bills.
The 45-year-old is accusing the bank of constructive fraud and is seeking compensatory and punitive damages as well as lawyer’s fees and costs.
Dourdan is also seeking a court order to prevent the foreclosure sale of his property.
