This is Samuel. I suggest the Michigan small claims is not the proper court. As you can see from the Michigan statute below, small claims is reserved for recovery of money. That would not include any punitive damages, which is what you would be seeking.
I suggest you would need to file in the District Court.
600.8401 Small claims division; creation; judge; jurisdiction.
A small claims division is created in each district as a division of the district court. A judge of the district court shall sit as judge of the small claims division. The jurisdiction of the small claims division shall be confined to cases for the recovery of money in which the amount claimed does not exceed the following:
(a) Beginning September 1, 2012, $5,000.00.
(b) Beginning January 1, 2015, $5,500.00.
(c) Beginning January 1, 2018, $6,000.00.
(d) Beginning January 1, 2021, $6,500.00
(e) Beginning January 1, 2024, $7,000.00.
