My wife and I sued the Landlord in small claims 2 weeks ago and lost. Both our names were on the suit. My wife showed up, but not me, and she signed a court form giving her permission to appear for me (not sure what this form was).
We lost the case against getting our deposit back. Landlord did not counter-sue at that time. But probably will later.
Since I did not appear can I get this case canceled and refiled against the landlord at least on my behalf.
HELP, what can I do?NOTE: The form given to her on that day was the "SC-109 Authorization To Appear" The form was one provided by the court on the day of the trial because she did not appear. My wife checked the box stating that Spouse has permission to appear in court for case".
