Dearborn group alleges bank improperly closed accounts of Detroit Arab-Americans


Dearborn — The Arab-American Civil Rights League says it’s filing a federal class-action lawsuit against Huntington Bank, saying it improperly closed accounts held by Detroit-area Arab Americans.

Details of the lawsuit were to be released Thursday afternoon at the organization’s Dearborn office.

The organization says it’s received hundreds of complaints that bank accounts were closed for no apparent reason. It says Huntington informed Arab-American account holders by letter that the accounts were being closed but gave no other explanations.

Earlier this year, the Arab-American Civil Rights League asked the federal government to investigate banks for closing Arab Americans’ accounts. Another group has asked the Treasury Department to investigate JPMorgan Chase & Co. for closing bank accounts.

Huntington spokeswoman Maureen Brown says the bank is reviewing the matter but can’t comment on legal issues. Brown says Huntington “appreciates the opportunity to do business within the Arab-American community” in Detroit and elsewhere.
