Court jurisdiction depends upon who is suing who, and for what. The jurisdiction usually falls in the County of residence of the party who is being sued. Small claims court dollar jurisdiction in Indiana is $6000 except for Marion County, (Indianapolis) which is $8,000. In Illinois it is $10,000.

Expert:  Irwin Law replied 1 year ago.

Statutes of limitations vary according to the type of case that is being filed. What exactly is the problem between this buyer and seller? Is it a written or verbal agreement?
