Doing It Yourself Small Claims Court

courtroom.PNGDuring one sweltering summer barbecue in a New Jersey suburb, Manny and his neighbor, Marta, relaxed in the shade and idly talked about their mutual love of woodwork art. Marta mentioned in passing that she was interested in getting a new statue for her mantelpiece, since her old statue of a bear had fallen and cracked. Since Manny was an accomplished carpenter, he agreed to create a new figurine just for her. The two decided on a dog design, based on her favorite pet, and wrote down that Marta would pay $500 when she received Manny's Work. Two months later, after many long hours of work, Manny rang Marta's doorbell and proudly presented his statue. To his dismay, Marta complained that the dog's ears were too short and didn't do her pet justice. She refused to pay the agreed-on price. When attempts at reconciliation ended in heated argument, Manny decided he had no choice than to sue for breach of contract.
