A New Jersey bank is taking legal action more than a month after a local fitness chain abruptly closed.
In April, Lehigh Valley 24-7 Racquet and Fitness Clubs closed its three locations without any warning.
Dozens of customers who paid their membership fees in advance have since filed complaints with the state.
Now a petition has been filed by the Bank of Camden which claims the health club defaulted on three loans totaling more than $8.5 million.
The bank is asking a Lehigh County court to intervene and freeze the clubs' accounts at Wells Fargo in Allentown until a court can determine how that money should be disbursed.
Attorney General Kathleen Kane is also asking the court to freeze the accounts.
