The legal troubles continue to mount for a Chicago attorney accused of bribing Ald. Edward Burke, as lawsuits have been filed against him by Byline Bank. The bank alleges that the attorney, Charles H. Cui, defaulted on loans related to his two North Side businesses, Retro Fitness and Immigration Lawyers.
Byline Bank is pursuing legal action against Cui, seeking to recover over $400,000 in debt that it claims is owed by Retro Fitness, Cui’s gym located in Portage Park, and Immigration Lawyers, his law firm. Both businesses operate within a building owned by Cui at 4109 W [location].
The lawsuits accuse Cui of failing to fulfill his financial obligations and defaulting on the loans provided by Byline Bank. The bank asserts that Cui’s businesses have not made the necessary payments as agreed upon, leading to the substantial debt owed.
These legal developments come in the wake of the attorney’s already tumultuous situation, with the bribery allegations involving Ald. Edward Burke. The combination of the bribery charges and the new lawsuits places Cui under increasing legal scrutiny.
The lawsuits filed by Byline Bank represent a significant setback for Cui, potentially impacting his businesses and personal finances. The legal proceedings will determine the outcome of the debt dispute and the potential consequences for Cui’s financial standing and reputation.
As the legal battles unfold, all parties involved will await the court’s decisions and resolutions. Byline Bank seeks to recover the outstanding debt, while Cui will likely mount a defense to contest the allegations made against him. The outcomes of these lawsuits will undoubtedly have far-reaching implications for Cui and the future of his businesses.
