Small Claims lawsuits

Definition

This category covers how a person might sue or be sued for a small amount of money. These are called small claim actions, in which the lawsuit covers a small amount of money (usually around $5000 or $10,000 or less), and goes to a special court. It might be for money that one person thinks the other owes them, from a contract, security deposit, accident damages, deceptive business practice, bad check, or land trespass.
