Hello. REALLY random question. Does anyone (esp anyone in the legal field) know how friendly small-claims judges in Montana are to an “every person” (me) vs. a company based in Montana?
Edit: more pertinent question… If a credit-card company sides w/ me in a dispute, would that provide some sort of evidence in my favor, should the vendor decide to sue me for what the credit-card company refunded me?
Best bet: talk to a local lawyer in the small claims
court jurisdiction you will be in to get the lay of the land on that court/judge. Probably can answer both questions on a free consultation basis if you shop it around.
Having lived in Montana, I can tell you the small claims process was pretty straightforward. They try to mediate first which resulted in a favorable payment, in our opinion, at the time. Depends on how much the other party wants to fight or even if they show up.
