Dean Andersen appeals an award of summary judgment dismissing his claims against State Collection Service, Inc. for alleged violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), the Wisconsin Consumer Act (WCA), and the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) as well as for negligent supervision and training. Andersen also appeals the circuit court’s order awarding $18,125 in attorney fees to State Collection Service under 15 U.S.C. § 1692k(a)(3) (2012). As the undisputed facts do not support a violation of any of the acts, we affirm. We also affirm the circuit court’s award of attorney fees based on a finding that Andersen filed this action in bad faith and for the purpose of harassment. This opinion will not be published.
