A client sued me in small claims court in Oregon and lost. I countersued for $5k for defamation and lost as well, but was confused why the judge ruled on my case at all and didn't refer to the circuit court, as I was told by the mediator that defamation cases are out of Small Claim Court's jurisdiction and the judge would have to refer it.I'm thinking she erred and of course this doesn't prevent me from suing in circuit court for libel/slander, and malicious prosecution because Small Claims never had the right to hear that kind of case in the first place, right?

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
