I loaned my coworker $500 can I take her small claims court and receive it back
If you actually loaned someone money and there was an agreement to pay it back, then yes, you can file in small claims court. Just make sure it was a loan and not a gift. Also, it depends on how long ago the loan took place. You can't sue for a debt that is more than four years old.
As usual, this answer does not constitute official legal advice and does not create an attorney-client relationship between the poster and me.
You can sue and you could win, but you will have a very difficult time collecting on a judgment.
