152777P.pdf   09/22/2016  James Kuntz  v.  Rodenburg LLP
   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:  15-2777
   U.S. District Court for the District of North Dakota - Bismarck    
   [PUBLISHED] [Loken, Author, with Wollman and Benton, Circuit Judges] 
   Civil case - Fair Debt Collections Practices Act. The district court did 
   not err in dismissing this action based on the defendant's actions in 
   attempting to contact a debtor, plaintiff's daughter, by calling his 
   residence; defendant reasonably believed that plaintiff had not provided a 
   complete response in his communication back to defendant, and it was 
   reasonable for defendant to believe plaintiff had or could obtain location 
   information about his daughter, thereby permitting a follow-up call to 
   learn if plaintiff had obtained or was willing to provide the information; 
   defendant's conduct did not rise to the level of harassment as a matter of 
   law, and the court did not err in granting defendant summary judgment on 
   plaintiff's Section 1692d(5) claim.
