About the Case
On December 8, 2021, National Merchants Association, Inc., a California corporation, (“NMA” or “Plaintiff”) filed a seven-count suit against Commercial Bank of California, a California chartered bank, in the Superior Court of California, Los Angeles County, California, case number 21STCV44674, for, among other state and federal violations, breach of written agreement, breach of covenant of good faith and fair dealing, unjust enrichment, and unfair business practices (the “Complaint”).
