I don’t usually handle small claims cases but I agreed to this one. The client had already had a trial in the justice court and the other party appealed the decision using the de novo appeal option to the district court. The client that contacted me hadn’t been represented by an attorney but the other side was and the trial was scheduled to happen in just over 2 weeks. The deadlines for discovery and motions had all passed but I took on the case expecting that the judge would understand and give me a chance to get caught up on the case. I was wrong, the judge would not change the deadlines and made us go forward with the trial as scheduled. The client I was representing was a roofing contractor and the other party was suing him alleging the roof was defective and they wanted my client to pay for the new and much more expensive roof they had placed on plus almost the same amount in attorney fees to bring this lawsuit. With only a short time to prepare and in an area of the law I had not previously dealt with we went forward with the trial and won.
