Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.
Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. You have 10 days after the Court makes its decision to request a new trial
. Such requests are rarely granted. In Small Claims
Court, you have 30 days to file an appeal to the Circuit Court
, where a completely new trial will be held. You will not be required to furnish a transcript. You may request the Court to provide you a cassette recording of your trial. There is a fee involved. However, the one thing you need to be aware of is that there normally needs to be a legal basis to support an appeal or new trial. The burden would be on you, as the moving party, to show the Judge failed to follow the law or made an error, when reaching his decision and that it should be overturned. I understand that the decision of the Judge was not fare but you are going to need to show why it was not fare. The clerk of court in the county where the matter was heard, should have the forms for you to use, to start the process.
