Roland Riemers appealed a district court judgment dismissing his claims for unpaid rent, late fees, property damage, and punitive damages. Riemers leased a rental property he owned to Heidee Hill, who lived in the home with her family. After the Hills vacated the property, Riemers sued Hill, her husband, and their three children for unpaid rent, late fees, property damage, and punitive damages. The Hills filed a motion to dismiss for failure to state a claim upon which relief could be granted and, alleging Riemers' claims were frivolous, also sought attorney fees. The Hills also filed a counterclaim seeking damages for abuse of process. Upon review, the Supreme Court concluded it did not have jurisdiction and dismissed the appeal.View "Riemers v.
