Hello, I will be assisting you
Small claims court judges are very experienced at spotting "difficult" people and reasonable people. You strike me as a releasable person so here are some basic legal principles
regardless of what he is suing you for the underlying claim is $260 and not $10k
under a breach of contract tort claims such as infliction of emotional distress etc. are generally not permitted
it would have be a case of fraud for a tort claim to maybe come in and even then what exactly is the emotional distress on a $260 dispute....
in court be calm and reasonable and let the attorney bury himself. Judges don't like bully attorneys especially ones that are giving the profession a bad name
I have recorded messages from him telling me he is going to show me how good of a lawyer he is. I even sent him a letter saying I would finish her ASAP....
In addition, if he has been bad mouthing you (your school) and you have evidence for that then you can use that as a counter claim
bad mouthing you to third parties, that is
bring all evidence to court. Note that you offered to expedite the course but that you cannot for professional reason teach all the classes in one shot and most importantly stay calm and collected
as far as suing him for perjury and/or fraud on the court that is not generally something that is done as your standing to bring such claims and the subject matter are questionable
Seems like a dumb Lawyer. I can easily dispute his accusations on me and the time line of events. His first message to me was I suggest you google my name......BLAH BLAHBLAH
I have a letter from him claiming outlandish accusations as well.... signed by him.
Let him bury himself. Be prepared to refund some of the money as the judge may decide that lessons that were not taken yet ought to be refunded but you can respectfully XXXXX XXXXX note that there was no refund policy
I trust this answers your question

Hello again. I just went to court. I lost.??? I had a protem judge. I agreed for him to hear it.right before my case he JUST leaves. A new judge steps in. No explanation. The Lawyer got to talk first. I never got to show my EVIDENCE. I just got yelled at about his accusations. I never got to fight the accusations. I tried to play my recordings of his threats that show his real concern. The Judge said How come I did not file a counter suit. I could not play my 2 min recordings. He played his recordings of me. I just stood there and took it. All my papers were in my hand. And my recorder. What Happened ??? Is this legal.
The daughter was right there and she was never questioned ??? The Father admitted in open court his daughter has PHYSCOTIC episodes in the past. Some how I made them worse. She could not drive supposedly for 3 weeks ????
He did not Identfy himself as a lawyer in court. Should he have. Shouldn't a judge question that girl.
