Jefferson was sued by Western Alliance Bank earlier this year in federal court. They claim he took out a $500K loan and refused to pay it back. Jefferson denied that he owed them anything and he disputed that the signature on the documents was his. He stated that it was not enforceable because he didn’t take out the money nor was he aware of the loan.
