The actor listed assets including two homes in L.A. totaling $1.86 million, $4,000 in household goods and a 2006 Dodge Charger valued at $7,000.

Will Gary Dourdan's legal woes ever end?

Just two months after facing a judge over felony battery charges stemming from an alleged domestic dispute with his ex-girlfriend, the former CSI star is headed back to court. Only this time, the embattled 45-year-old is the plaintiff and not the defendant.

The star has sued Wells Fargo over the foreclosure of his Venice, Calif., home, claiming that the bank didn't give him sufficient foreclosure options in the wake of the recession and failed to offer him a mortgage adjustment before seizing the property.

According to documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court Thursday and obtained by E! News, Dourdan—whose real name is Gary Durdin—is suing the bank for fraud, negligence and wrongful foreclosure, among other causes of action.

Dourdan claims that he purchased the four-bedroom, three-bath house in 2005 for $902,000 and obtained a mortgage loan from Wells Fargo for $736,000. He purportedly fulfilled his monthly payments through June 2010 until his income was "severely impacted by the economic recession which had a dire impact on the entertainment industry and caused him to be laid off in January 2010."

Dourdan claims he requested mortgage assistance, which Wells Fargo denied, and that the bank subsequently failed to offer further foreclosure prevention options in "good faith."
