New Booklet Available For Filing Small Claims Actions

The New York State Office of Court Administration has issued a new booklet, "A Guide To Small Claims in NYS City, Town and Village Courts. http://www.nycourts.gov/ea/ResourceCenter/small-claims/small-claims-guide_2005.pdf . . . The Small Claims Court is an informal court where individuals can sue for money only, up to $3,000 in town or village courts, and $5,000 in city courts, without a lawyer. If you have a claim for damages for more than $3,000/5,000 you cannot separate it into two or more claims to meet the $3,000/ 5,000 limit. . . . If you believe that a person or business damaged something you own, you may sue that person or business for the monetary amount of your damages. You cannot sue in Small Claims Court to force a person or business to perform a task, such as to fix a damaged item, or to fulfill a promise made in an advertisement. The court may not order the return of a personal item. Your lawsuit may be for money only.
