What is small claims court?

Small Claims Court, often referred to as the “People’s Court,” is a place to get relatively quick and simple resolution of a civil (not criminal) dispute without the need for a lawyer. The claim cannot exceed $5,000 and must be for money only (not, for example, to force someone to fix a damaged item, or for pain and suffering).

These are typical types of Small Claims Court cases:

• Breach of a contract, lease, warranty or agreement

• Bounced or stopped check

• Loss of luggage, property, time from work, or use of property
