I had a small claims auto accident hearing. The defendant brought a film he acquired from the scene(gas station) the filmed appeared to be tampered with and was shown on there laptop with skipping and slowing down and stops before impact that resulted in my losing my case despite having medical evidence of injury. Is it legal for the judge to watch a video on a laptop of the defendant and judge speed with skips and slow down and tampering? Could I file SC-108 and get a re-trial?I just found out that because the defendant wasn't driving the car and his friend was and her name was not on the small claims suit or the judgment I can sue her for negligence?
