Gregory and Laura Packer have filed a lawsuit against Suh over a hefty residence security deposit, according to The Oakland Press.

The Packers (no relation to the prominent NFL franchise of the same name) leased a Birmingham, Mich., residence from Suh and his sister, Ngum Suh, and now are seeking twice the amount of the $100,000 security deposit, along with interest, court costs and attorney fees.

The Packer family moved into the residence March 15. They later moved out and notified the Suhs, who haven't returned the deposit and haven't allowed the Packers to retrieve private property still at the residence.

The Suhs also are accused of violating the security deposit law, which states that a security deposit cannot be more than 1.5 times the amount of monthly rent.

Stay tuned for the other side of this one. Suh, meanwhile, heads to Philadelphia for the Lions' Week 6 matchup against the Eagles.
