OPINION

This is a summary judgment case. In the court below, Andrew and Cynthia Blanche sued First Nationwide Mortgage Corporation alleging various causes of action, generally contending the company wrongfully reported them as delinquent on their mortgage payments and thereby ruined their credit history. The Blanches appeal the judgment granted in favor of First Nationwide, arguing first that the company’s motion for summary judgment was void because it was not signed by the attorney in charge. The Blanches further argue the motion was untimely because it was filed before they had adequate time for discovery. Finally, the Blanches present evidentiary issues, both procedural and substantive, contending their summary judgment evidence created at least a fact issue about each of their causes of action. After reviewing the record, we conclude the trial court correctly granted summary judgment on all the Blanches’ claims except one. Accordingly, we affirm the trial court’s judgment in part and reverse it in part.
