I've had to haul 3 clients into small claims court in the last 28 years. Always leaves a bad taste in your mouth...win or lose. The 1st time I only got half of what was owed---the judge turned out to be a substitute sitting in for the regular guy....turned out to be best buddies with the clients neighbor! 2nd time the guy coughed up in full...it just took him 3 1/2 more months to pay it off at $25 every 2 wks(judges idea).3rd time the deadbeat never even showed up. I won, but never could collect. Sold the mount for half price a year or two later. I sell stuff now, and get a BIGGER DEPOSIT!!!
