BENTON — A legal note holder is suing Golconda residents for allegedly failing to make payments.
The U.S. government, representing the Rural Housing Service agency, filed the complaint on Oct. 19 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois against Leslie Robert Cox and Leslie S. Barger, et. al., alleging failure to pay.
The U.S. government alleges that on Oct. 18, 2004, the estate of Leslie Robert Cox mortgaged a property at 125 N. Monroe Street in Golconda to Rural Housing Service for $76,500.
As of Aug. 16, $99,058.22 was due.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks to foreclose and sell the property, plus attorney’s fees, costs, and expenses and such other relief as equity may require.
The federal government is represented by Adam E. Hanna, U.S. Attorney's Office, in Fairview Heights.
