My case in small claims court against my Landlord for double my security deposit plus interest was dismissed by the Magistrate, who said there is a $5,000 maximum for small claims cases. I asked about the exception for security deposit cases. He said there are no exceptions. Case dismissed! What should my next step be? This seems so unfair. I drove several hours to get to and from court today for the hearing. Do I have any recourse? Thank you.
