Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: This is general information for educational purposes only and is not legal advice.

I am sorry to hear about this situation. Please tell me, did you file this in small claim court? And, what date was the judgment rendered?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yeah I filed for small claim court and the date was today 6/13/2016
Expert:  Ely replied 1 year ago.

Thank you.

If not happy with the decision, you have the right to appeal this judgment to District Court. See HERE for instructions on how to do so. The Court may override the original small claims court's decision if there was error in law or fact or if the small claims court abused its discretion. The matter must be begun within 14 days of the original judgment.

Kindly rate my answer as one of TOP THREE FACES/STARS and then SUBMIT, as this is how experts get credit for our time. Rating my answer the bottom two faces/stars (or failing to submit the rating) does not give me credit and reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith with a positive rating.

the paper we received said that he need it to pay court fees and 600 but it also said in addition is worth nothing the requiring return of the truck in this matter would result in the breaching party receiving a more valuable vehicle than the originally delivered a squarely inequitable result what does it mean?
Expert:  Ely replied 1 year ago.

Likely, no. The Court would only order fees/fines in judgment (more fees if it feels they are warranted than originally awarded in small claims), and not an order for a better vehicle.

Yes, but my answer stays the same:

That means that the Defendant has to pay you money, but that is it.
