I think the only thing not mentioned is that, while this deal is now in the black, and you need to consider the time value of money, and vice-versa. You also need to go through the motions to be able to do it right next time you are truly put in a bad spot. This is the time to learn something about how the process works, since you neeed to know the steps to sucessful judgements, and get your questions answered without anything riding on this case, and no pressure. Just think if the JP tells you its a good thing you did XYZ correctly sometime in the future, and you look back to today as the occasion when you learned about those steps. If you want anything to land on a credit report, remember that the SS number is the key, so dig that out, and if you don’t have that, add it to your paperwork for just such an occasion. DOB is another unique numerical identifier. Make sure that is on your paperwork from now on, too.
That is about the only value I see in prusuing it, not to ‘get back’ at her, but to have a free lesson in JP processes, since you profess not to know. I still graphically recall my first small claims all those years ago. It seems like another century.
ummmm, wait, it WAS a different century!
