Californians - Small Claims Court Maximum Demand Amount Upped to 10K
California seal
This could be good news, or bad, depending which side you’re on. The maximum demand amount has changed from $7,500 to $10,000.

Small claims court maximum demand increased to $10,000 under the California Code of Civil Procedures § 116.221 & 116.224 and added by S.B. 221

This bill was signed by Gov. Jerry Brown and the new increase will become effective January 1, 2012 until January 1, 2015, with further changes. Until January 1, 2012, the maximum amount is $7,500.

Dan, considering we live in California, I would agree to it could be higher!

Pamela,

Wow I didn't know that.  I'm so behind that I thought it was still $5,000!  Well hopefully it will help free up the higher courts and not let everyone become even more sue happy!

Brian and Heather, small claims court fulfills a purpose for the people, so I'm glad they upped the amount.

Pamela -- this is important news to get out to all Californians --- not sure it will help the backlog in our overcrowded court system but it is a start.
