I'm in a case regarding an engagement ring in AZ superior court - it has been appealed from mandatory arbitration and I just got off the phone with the judge and the other party in a telephonic pretrial conference - the judge seemed irritated and asked why it was not filed in justice court or small claims court - the response was given that the ring's value (~25,000 to 42,000) exceeded the requirements but the judge then asked why not Justice Court because surely it meets the $50k limitations. Afterwards, I read that Justice Court limitations are $10k. Can this occur in Arizona? Or am I now limited to receiving $10k? Also, am I bound by an agreement in a joint pretrial memorandum to have a bench trial?
I do not understand what really happened on the phone call. Please help.
