Cy-Fair credit union sued over repossessed Hummer
A Harris County man is suing over claims a repo company kept important documents after it broke into his garage to repossess a Hummer.
Joseph Kiggundu filed a lawsuit on Nov. 14 in Harris County District Court against First Community Credit Union and Lo-Kate’s R’s Inc., citing violations of the Deceptive Trade Practices Act, invasion of privacy and wrongful debt collections.
Kiggundu says he obtained a loan from First Community Credit Union to purchase a 2006 Hummer H3, and that on Aug.19, 2010, the credit union hired Lo-Kate’s to repossess the vehicle. According to the brief, Lo-Kate’s employees broke into Kiggundu’s locked garage to repossess the Hummer, which contained his important work documents.
The suit alleges the company refused to return any of the documents he left in the vehicle.
Kiggundu is seeking multiple damages, attorney’s fees and court costs. He is being represented in the case by San Antonio attorney David P. Schafer.
