DO I HAVE A SMALL CLAIMS CASE?
Small Claims Court handles cases in which the demand is not more than $3,500, exclusive of court costs.
Procedure in Small Claims Court is simpler than in other courts. Parties are not represented by attorneys and cases can be heard relatively quickly and inexpensively. The hearing officer's decision is final and not appealable.
Please note: If you believe you are entitled to damages greater than these monetary limits, but still wish to sue in Small Claims, you give up your right to recover damages over the money limits. The additional money cannot be claimed later in a separate lawsuit.
