(“
Defendant
”)
, state as follows:
PARTIES, JURISDICTION AND VENUE

Plaintiff Ali El-Hallani is an individual residing in the City of Canton,County of Wayne, State of Michigan.2.
 
Plaintiff Mark Manuaeel is an individual residing in the City of Farmington Hills, County of Oakland, State of Michigan.3.
 
Defendant Huntington National Bank 
(“
Huntington
”)
is a subsidiarycorporation of Huntington Bancshares Incorporated, headquartered in Columbus, Ohio.Huntington transacts business throughout the Eastern District of Michigan.4.
 
The subject matter of this lawsuit involves racial, ethnic, national originand religious discrimination committed by Defendant within the Eastern District of Michigan.5.
 
This lawsuit also arises out of statutory violations committed byDefendant within the Eastern District of Michigan.6.
 
The amount in controversy, excluding interest, fees and costs exceedsseventy five thousand ($75,000.00) dollars and therefore, jurisdiction and venue are properly in this Court.7.
 
This is a class action brought in diversity between the Class of Plaintiffsand Defendant Huntington, wherein jurisdiction lies under 28 U.S.C. § 1332. Jurisdictionis also proper as the class action concerns a federal question, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §1331. Venue is proper in this court under 28 U.S.C. Sec. 1392(b) because a substantialnumber of the events and occurrences giving rise to this action occurred in the Eastern

3District of Michigan and because a number of the Plaintiffs are located within the EasternDistrict of Michigan.
CLASS ACTION ALLEGATIONS
8.
 
Plaintiffs incorporate all previous allegations by reference as if fullyrestated herein.9.
 
Plaintiffs bring this action on behalf of a Class of individuals who are past,current and future customers of Huntington.10.
 
The Class is numerous and some members of the Class will not beidentified until they become customers of Huntington. Accordingly, joinder isimpracticable.11.
 
Questions of law and/or fact predominate among all members of the Classin that any legal and/or factual issues relating to the rights of Plaintiffs as individuals will be equally applicable to any and all Class members.12.
 
Plaintiffs
claims are typical of the claims of the other members of theClass, and Plaintiffs will fairly and adequately represent the interests of the Class.13.
 
The maintenance of a class action is superior to other available methods of adjudication in promoting the convenient administration of justice because,
inter alia
:a.
 
the prosecution of separate actions would create a risk of inconsistentor varying adjudications with respect to individual members of theclass that would confront Defendant with incompatible standards of conduct; b.
 
the prosecution of separate actions would create a risk of adjudicationswith respect to individual members of the class that would as a practical matter be dispositive of the interests of other members not parties to the adjudications or substantially impair or impede their ability to protect their interests;
