UNPUBLISHED CIVIL OPINIONS FROM THE MINNESOTA COURT OF APPEALSA06-2019
Calm Waters, LLC,
Kanabec County Board of Commissioners, et al.,
TOUSSAINT, Chief Judge
In this consolidated proceeding, appellant/relator Calm
Waters, LLC, through a direct appeal, challenges the denial by the
district court of its petition for a writ of mandamus and, through a
certiorari appeal, challenges the denial of its preliminary plat
application by respondent Kanabec County Planning Commission. Because
the county failed to approve or deny Calm Waters's preliminary plat
application within 60 days after the filing of the written request, we
reverse the district court's decision and hold that the application is
approved by operation of law under Minn. Stat. ? 15.99, subd. 2(a)
(2006). In light of this decision, we dismiss the certiorari challenge

Appellant Dean C. Suneson sued respondent Northern Tool and
Equipment Company for age discrimination after respondent terminated his
employment. On appeal from a grant of summary judgment to respondent,
appellant argues that the district court erred in determining that (1)
there were no genuine issues of material fact; (2) appellant failed to
establish a prima facie case of age discrimination; and (3) respondent's
proffered reason for terminating appellant was not a pretext for
discrimination. We affirm.

Ronald W. Schultenover,
Department of Employment and Economic Development,
This appeal is from the decision of an unemployment law judge that
relator is disqualified from receiving unemployment benefits because he
quit his employment at a staffing service employer. We affirm.

J. P. Morgan Chase Bank,
Shapiro and Nordmeyer, LLP,
Homecomings Financial Network, Inc.,
Appellant challenges the grant of summary judgment to respondents,
arguing that the district court erred by determining that the

not violate the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. We affirm.

Appellant mother challenges the district court order
terminating her parental rights, arguing that the district court erred
in finding that appellant failed to rebut the presumption that she was
palpably unfit and finding that reasonable efforts had failed to correct
the conditions leading to the child's placement. Because the district
court properly applied the law and did not abuse its discretion, we

Appellants Kathleen and Thomas Morris owned 40% of the stock
of respondent Propack Sales, Inc. (Propack); respondents Judith and C.
Stephen Trotter owned another 40%. The Morrises brought this action
against Propack and the Trotters, alleging that the Trotters breached
the settlement agreement that had resolved the Morrises' previous
lawsuit against them. On appeal, the Morrises argue that the district
court abused its discretion in dismissing the Trotters from the lawsuit
and in granting judgment to Propack, following a bench trial, on the
Morrises' claims for attorney fees and possession of a vehicle owned by
Propack. Because we see no abuse of discretion in the dismissal of the
Trotters and no error in the district court's judgment, we affirm.

Jerry D. Hess, et al.,
City of Fergus Falls,
Appellants challenge the district court's grant of summary
judgment to respondent city, arguing that the district court erred by
determining that the city had a rational basis for vacating the northern
321.22 feet of a public-road right of way. Appellants argue also that
the district court abused its discretion by denying their motion to
compel discovery. We affirm.
