To the editor:
I recently went to small claims court to sue someone for services that were paid for but not completed. He did not appear for the hearing, and the court entered a judgment for $1,120.
This action cost me $125, and the only satisfaction I got was that a judgment order was entered. Now in order for me to collect the money, I will have to pay another $120 to take him back to court. There is still no guarantee I will ever collect the money owed to me.
