I recently took a former roommate to small claims court for breaking our lease early. We won round one, and she appealed. We went to the appeal, and the defendant put in a declaration written by a former roommate who was practically evicted by the landlord and left on bad terms. Would that be sufficient evidence to hurt our chances of keeping the winnings in our favor? Also, the judge was in quite a rush to finish a jury trial that was still going on, so we didn't even get a chance to respond the defendant's slanderous claims about us. Will the judge look at the hard evidence of her breaking the lease in our favor, or will he choose her "word-of-mouth" tactics against us. She only put in two pieces of evidence: the declaration, and some checks showing different amounts (rent, bills, etc.).
