HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A Madison County woman filed a class action lawsuit against Madison County Circuit Clerk Jane Smith.

The lawsuit, filed Friday afternoon, states Smith has illegally collected a $150 civil lawsuit filing fee for the past 7 years.

According to the lawsuit, lawmakers passed an act creating the Judicial Administrative Fund of Madison County in March 2004. The lawsuit states Smith was supposed to stop collecting the $150 fee  "on or around" January 1, 2006.

The filing states Smith's collection of the $150 fee is contrary to state law, unauthorized, illegal, and unconstitutional.

The lawsuit requests a jury trial.
