FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A legal challenge to overdraft fees charged by Fargo's Gate City bank puts it in an unhappy and growing list of banks who have been sued over allegedly abusive charges.

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A legal challenge to overdraft fees charged by Fargo's Gate City bank puts it in an unhappy and growing list of banks who have been sued over allegedly abusive charges.

Amber Pieloor has filed a lawsuit in federal district court. She wants it to be expanded to include other Gate City customers who she says were treated the same way.

Pieloor uses a Gate City debit card that takes money out of her bank account.

She claims when Gate City processes the charges, they're put in a different order. She contends this makes her account run out of money more quickly, and the bank collects more overdraft fees.

Gate City President Steve Swiontek (SWAN'-tek) says the lawsuit is wrong and the company will fight it.
