Judge Pirro

Funny story...

 

So my sister has been dealing with this lady since July on getting her to pay for the damage her son did to her car. He was riding his bike and decided to jump off at full speed and let his bike run into my sisters brand new car she had just driven off the lot that week!! So anyways, me, my husband, and my sister have all been talking to her and seeing if she's going to pay for since July, she said she was and had us go to a specific auto body shop for an estimate. Well as time went on she started to say we couldn't prove anything and blah, blah, blah. This is the lady that came over to our house, gave us HER info. cause she new her son did it, made her son apologize, and now she is just flat out being shady. We told her maybe check with the homeowners association and maybe they would pay, she said they would the first time she talked to them, then the second time they said they wouldn't cause it wasn't on her property. So after that she quit taking our calls and eluded us all together. Finally a few weeks ago I told my sister it was probably best just to take her to court since she obviously didn't plan on paying for the damage. My sister is newly 18 and moved in with me last summer so I am trying to help her out all I can. Oh and this lady flat out said no one is going to believe my sister the 18 year old over her!!! ggrrrrrrr!

 

So the funny part is last night my sis got a call from the Judge Jeanine Pirro show saying they wanted her case and they would pay for her flight to CHicago, and she would be guaranteed the money within 30 days if she wins the case. Today we just got the overnighted letter from fedex explaining everything. So I of course look up the show cause I have NEVER heard of it. I am wondering how they got the info. on this small claims case? I saw on Pirro's website there is a number you can call to submit your case, and I'm wondering if that's what this crazy lady did!

 

So my question is ( if there is anyone that has any small claim experience), how much evidence does my sis need to win the case? It's not like we have the kid on tape doing it. I took pics with my phone immediately after cause it was so bad! Do our phone recors with her constitute as evidence. I have no freakin clue what we need, or if she'll win. My sis wants to go to Chicago since it's a free trip, but in the same she doesn't want to go and be made an idiot of if she doesn't win...hmmm

 

Sorry for the book! haha!

Anyone have any suggestions or knowledge into small claims??

Thanks!  =)

Re: Judge Pirro

I would recommend you get as much evidence as possible. Anything u can get will help.. Did u try asking how they got your sisters info??  Maybe its that crazy lady!

Re: Judge Pirro

Yeah she is supposed to call the people back and tell em if she's interested or not and she is going to ask then about how they aquired the info. I wouldn't think courts just give out that info. out to anyone freely, but who knows. Unfortunately I don't think there is really any evidence, besides all of our words against hers. I don't know if the phone records would work as evidence or not. A lie detector test would work but i doubt they would go that far for small claims! haha! Thanks for your input Pinky! Anyone have ANY other suggestions/legal advice?

Re: Judge Pirro

The fact that she came over to your house, made her son apologize etc etc, is pretty good. How many people witnessed her doing this? Gather EVERYTHING you have, remember times, dates, locations of everything. I watch Judge Judy all the time (I LOVE HER), and trust me, she can usually find the culprit just by the way you speak. Speak when spoken to, don't be defensive, present your case in a quiet calm manner. I cannot imagine the woman in question called the show, why would she? Shes not looking for money from you, its the other way around. Maybe it was a relative, or friend of the family that just didn't say anything to you? I would definitely call the show and ask how they got your information. Remember forewarned is forearmed, good luck, I hope you win, and please do keep us informed.

Re: Judge Pirro

Thanks missb! I guess I am worried about the fact that my sister is 18, and that the crazy lady said no one would believe her cause of that fact. I dunno, I'm prego and have been having serious stress issues with this whole ordeal and even deleoped a bad stress rash all over from it. I just feel horrible that my sister has to go thru this. Are there no trustworthy/honest people out there anymore??

 

The only people that witnessed her having her son apologize are me and my sis...unfortunately. ARGH!

Re: Judge Pirro

Age has no relevance at all, so don't worry about that. It's too bad there is no other evidence. I also think that because your sister is involved in this she has a right to know who called the court. I'm sure this woman will get emotional and defensive in court anyway, she sounds like the type, and that will go against her. Was your sister told whether she's the defendant or the plaintiff?

Re: Judge Pirro

Yeah she has been telling many people and giving them guilt trips about being a single mother, working 3 jobs, only having an hour to sleep a day, and going thru a divorce...in which is alllll untrue! I am a stay at home mom and she lives right down the street from me and she is home all the time at all hours of the day, her husband still lives there, and they still are lovey so makes me think huh? really lady? I played into her guilt trip and honestly felt horrible for her since my own mother struggled being single and having to raise us kids, and plus not like she wanted her son to wreck his bike into my sis's car...but anyways turns out the lady is FOS and is super good at lying and manipulating. Just makes me mad cause I was so nice to her cause i felt for her, now I wish I would just tear her apart! lol! (geez can't tell i'm a little frustrated can ya?) haha

 

Anyways what that lady said about the age thing really got to my sis and she is nervous now too. You are right though, age should have no relevance whatsoever!

I am so upset that I threw away the piece of paper that she wrote all her info. on for us. It was really messy so I re-wrote it in a notebook, cause I'm crazy like that! haha. But I really honestly didn't think it would go like this! She was so nice and cooperative at first. From now on if anything like this EVER happens we know now to call the police and have them file an official report so that way there is solid evidence! WHat happened to good people????

So my sis is going to call Judge Pirro's people and ask all the questions she didn't get to last night because when they initially called, my sis was in total shock and disbelief! HAHA, and I don't blame her! Seems out there! ahahaha

 

Thanks again!

Re: Judge Pirro

Haha thanks !

Yeah she already did all the filing and paid someone to serve her the papers. UNfortunately it was the day before Thanksgiving that the guy was able to get ahold of her to serve, but I guess she deserves it for being a horrible person. That is one thing that Judge Pirro said was that if my sis won, she was guaranteed the money to be paid in full within 30 days, and she wouldn't have to go after her or anything for the money. They take care of it. So , do you think that maybe they just happen to be able to look over the case or something for the show? Or would it have to be submitted by someone involved in the case? I'm just confused as to how they got the case info. My sis said it sounded like they had the papers and were reading right off of them. UGH I can't wait until she calls and asks how they got the info.!!

 

So in your opinion would our phone records of how many times we contacted and talk to her constitute as "evidence"? Also how else could we have gotten her cell # without her giving it to us? Grrr.

 

Thanks for the info! I am most def passing everything along to my sis.

If she does go on the show everyone on here will have to watch! hahahaha! Then write hate mail if she loses! hahahahaha! j/k!!!

Re: Judge Pirro

Your sister can also say she has a witness. YOU!! since you were with her at the time it happened. Also if she takes her son and the judge speaks to the boy im pretty sure he'll tell the truth. Kids tend to get nervous when it comes to cops or other higher authority. And they usually tell the truth...

Re: Judge Pirro

yeah i've thought about that, and plus she talked to my husband many times saying she was going to pay for it, that was until she started hanging up on us whenever we would call. oh yeah and she even pulled this crap where we would call and she would say her lawyer advised her not to talk to us, and then she would just hang up...until my husband got her to stay on the line and was like, "what's your lawyers name cause I would love to speak with him." Then she said she didn't want any trouble and said she would pay, (again), but then started pulling the same crap again! ARGH!

Geez sorry for my rambling everyone! haha! But anywho I didn't think it would matter that I was a witness because I thought small claims didn't use witnesses, and plus it would just be another she said,  she said deal. haha!  yep, fun fun stuff!
