ABC Plastics, Inc. and Ernest Stoppelmoor *fn1 appeal from the district court's *fn2 dismissal of their third-party complaint against the Small Business Administration and LPP Mortgage, as assignee of the SBA. The underlying suit was filed in Iowa state court by Edward J. Mattes, Catherine Mattes, and Nancy Waters against Stoppelmoor, seeking payment of the rent on a real estate lease. Stoppelmoor filed a third-party complaint against the SBA and its assignee, alleging that SBA "entered into a business agreement" for him to purchase a business, whose assets, it later turned out, included faulty equipment and contaminated materials. Stoppelmoor alleged that the SBA "intentionally misrepresented *fn3 or failed to warn or advise [Stoppelmoor] about the contaminated materials on the business property, as well as the faulty equipment." The SBA removed the case to federal court and moved to dismiss it for lack of jurisdiction and failure to state a claim, Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b)(1) and (6). The district court granted the SBA's motion. Stoppelmoor appeals, arguing that he has pleaded an adequate basis for recovery under contract, third-party beneficiary to contract, and tort theories. We affirm.
