Child support operator sued

Bank One accused of delaying payments

By The Associated Press

COLUMBUS — Four women have sued Bank One, accusing the operator of Ohio's child support collection and payment system of illegally delaying payments.

“They held onto them, kept a high bank balance, collected interest on it and made millions off of the backs of children,” Geraldine Jensen, president of the Association for Children for Enforcement of Support, said Tuesday.

Four mothers represented by the national advocacy group filed the lawsuit in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court in Dayton, where one of the women lives, on Monday in hopes of forcing Bank One to return all interest earned by allegedly delaying payments.
