James Clark has sued Paypal for mismanagement of his account. He said the company is holding both business funds and donations to him, collected via PayPal. According to a small claim affidavit posted on his Facebook page, he alleges the company refuses to release funds in the account. He is suing for $1,500 in order to recover money for business and in support of his trip to Haiti.
Clark, who is trained as a medic and spent 19 years with the U.S. Army, in January asked for donations to fund his mission. He returned about a month ago with pictures and video of the things he and his crew encountered, and is currently planning a second trip.
An interview request has been sent to PayPal, Inc. for comment. The company is based in San Jose, Calif.
