The California Small Claims Court has rules on how many claims and for what amounts one can file. Individuals can file for as much as $7,500.00. However, an individual can only file two cases per year for over $2,500.00 up to $7,500.00. For example, an individual can file one case for $5,000.00 and another for $7,500.00 in a calendar year. After that, this same individual can file as many cases as he/she wants for $2,500.00 or under. We have many clients who will file hundreds of cases per year claiming just under this mark.
Corporations, LLP's, LLC's and Partnerships can claim as much as $5,000.00. They are limited,however, to two cases per calendar year of over $2,500.00 up to $5,000.00. All other cases filed in the same calendar year must be $2,500.00 or under.
