Discrimination lawsuit filed against Michigan bank

DEARBORN, Mich. -- A Michigan bank is headed to court in a discrimination lawsuit.

The Arab American Civil Rights League says Huntington National Bank discriminates against those of Middle Eastern descent.

The suit accuses the bank of closing their accounts with dozens of complaints from victims ranging from long-time bank customers to children.

"They didn't want to discuss this issue with me. You know, they said to call the 800 number on the letter, which is what I did and never received a call back," said Adnan Mouhjer, who's bank account closed.

The bank says its policy does not allow comment on legal matters.

Officials did say they appreciate the opportunity to do business within the Arab American community.
