RadarOnline.com is reporting a judge issued on March 27, 2019, a bench warrant for actress Tori Spelling for a lawsuit that has been ongoing with City National Bank.
Paperwork filed in Los Angeles Superior Court obtained by the publication said that the judgment debtor failed to appear in court.
Judge James Blancarte ordered a bench warrant for Spelling and held to a new date. Spelling’s warrant was put on hold but would be put into effect if the actress did not show up for the court case rescheduled for May 1.
The judge also ordered bail to be set for $5000.
City National Bank sued Spelling and Dean McDermott, her husband for failing to pay a loan given to the couple in 2010 in the amount of $400,000.
On March 28, 2019, a clerk in Los Angeles Superior Court signed a writ of execution. This means a Sheriff could garnish the wages of the couple and take control of their bank accounts.

The bank also demanded Spelling repay $17,149.09 withdrawn in Sept. 2016.
The courts awarded City National Bank in May 2017 in a case against Spelling and McDermott $202,066. The couple did not pay the judgment in 669 days. Spelling had $40,280 interest fines and McDermott has to pay in fines $37,029.
