LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Indiana’s attorney general has added the names of more than a dozen alleged victims to the state’s lawsuit against the owner of a sports club.

Attorney General Greg Zoeller (ZEL‘-ur) recently amended his suit against International Sports Clubs owner Paul Fortwendel to add the names of 16 former gym members.

Zoeller is now seeking restitution for a total of 28 alleged victims as well as civil penalties totaling $154,000.

The Journal & Courier reports (http://on.jconline.com/1sUOLro ) Zoeller’s suit contends that Fortwendel cheated the gym members when they tried to discontinue or alter their memberships.

The state’s amended suit cites a variety of deceptive consumer sales tactics that Fortwendel allegedly used against his customers.

Court records indicate that Fortwendel has yet to formally respond to Zoeller’s complaint.
