Meints v. North American Recovery

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO
Senior District Judge Richard P. Matsch
Civil Action No. 13-cv-02581-RPM
NORTH AMERICAN RECOVERY,
ORDER GRANTING SUMMARY JUDGMENT OF DISMISSAL
Pursuant to the briefing filed on the motion for summary judgment filed by
Defendant North American Recovery on May 13, 2014, it appears that the plaintiff seeks
recovery under 15 U.S.C. § 1692c(b) based on a telephone conversation between a
representative of the defendant and a neighbor of the plaintiff, a transcript of which is attached
as Exhibit E to the defendant’s motion. The contention made is that by referring to a “personal
business matter” is a communication about a debt under the F.D.C.P.A. The contention is
without merit. The full quotation from the transcript is as follows:
MISS SLUTSKY: Is it an emergency?
JAMIE: No, no, no, nothing like that. I’m just trying to update her.
There’s been a new development on a personal business matter of hers and I’m
just trying to get a hold of her on that number.
Because the plaintiff has failed to produce any support for the contentions made in the
complaint and the support for the claim under 15 U.S.C. § 1692c(b) is inadequate, it is
ORDERED that the defendant’s motion for summary judgment is granted and judgment
shall enter for the defendant dismissing this civil action with the award of costs.
