The judge may have taken notice of the letter, but actually your case was probably dismissed due to lack of evidence or damages, if you were unable to prove that there was an unauthorized charge made on your account.
(If it's a company you had shopped with before, it could have been a mistake, and you should contact Bill Me Later or the Better Business Bureau
to resolve the issue).
Your case could also have been dismissed because there is no personal jurisdiction over 'Bill me Later' or the company in South Carolina.
That said, if a judge does it, it is typically legal and proper, as judges tend not to violate the law. Although you definitely should have received a copy of the letter, but from the defendant, not the court.
That said, you do have the right to appeal the small claims
judgment if you disagree with the decision, which you obviously do in this instance.
I hope the above information is helpful.
