I took Verizon Wireless to Small Claims Court and won. However, Verizon entered a motion into District Court regarding the manner in which they were served. Their motion was approved. However, I checked the contract. It specifically states BOTH PARTIES (Verizon Wireless and consumer) give up the right to take any issue to court. All differences must be resolved by arbitration or small claims only.Can I take this back to Small claims?
