Can a decision in Small Claims Court be appealed?


Yes, you (or the defendant) can appeal a decision. The appeal will then be heard in a formal civil court. Both parties have 10 days after a decision to file an appeal. Civil court rules are more complex and an attorney will be needed. Court expenses are also greater.
