Small Claims Court
A large number of lawsuits that are brought across the nation do not involve millions, or even thousands, of dollars. Small claims courts were created precisely to deal with claims that fall below an amount set by each state's laws. Sometimes lawsuits are brought in these courts simply for ""the principle"" of the matter. These smaller courts were intended to provide a relatively inexpensive and quick way for litigants to resolve their disputes, and are frequently used to handle disputes involving contracts, landlords and tenants, consumers, and more.
