BRENDA M. BOWMAN, Plaintiff,
VANTIUM CAPITAL, INC., ACQURA LOAN SERVICES, Defendant.
JACKSON L. KISER, Senior District Judge.
Plaintiff Brenda M. Bowman ("Plaintiff") filed a Complaint in state court alleging that Defendant Vantium Capital, Inc., doing business as Acqura Loan Services ("Vantium"), violated the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act ("RESPA"). Vantium removed the action to this Court and moved to dismiss the Complaint for failure to state a claim, pursuant to Rule 12(b)(6) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Plaintiff responded, and the issues were fully briefed by the parties. I heard oral arguments on January 6, 2014, and the matter is now ripe for decision. For the reasons stated in the accompanying Memorandum Opinion, Vantium's Motion to Dismiss [ECF No. 6] is hereby GRANTED. Plaintiff is granted leave to amend her Complaint within fourteen (14) days of the date of this Order, if she so chooses.
The Clerk is directed to send a copy of this Order and accompanying Memorandum Opinion to all counsel of record.
