A couple of weeks ago I filed a claim in DC Small Claims court. (A last-resort effort to have my next-door neighbor pay my emergency vet bill after she put food-baited rat poison in my yard.) Yesterday I received a letter from the “Judge Mathis” show (based in Chicago) recruiting us to be on the show! The letter said – “While looking through public records, our researcher came across the lawsuit you recently filed.”
I’ve never watched any of the judge shows, though of course have some idea of them, but never thought about people combing through public records searching for cases! I think I would rather be buried alive in guano than go on TV – especially with my screaming-crazy neighbor – but part of me also thinks it would make an interesting story. Also, there is the whole free trip to Chicago. . .
So any thoughts? The actual money judgement is pretty minor – I sued primarily because she still insists she did nothing wrong and I can’t risk having her do something like that again.
