The issue before the court was a small claims matter, involving a vehicle defect.

The plaintiff sought out $8,200 in damages and in California the limit in small claims is $10,000

The case was sent to mediation.

The plaintiff outlined his claim.

The defendant said, "You don't understand your not going to get $1.00 dollar.

The plaintiff once again calmly requested the damages.

Once again the defendant stated "You don't seem to understand, you are not going to get $1.00 dollar"

The plaintiff said, lets compromise and I will adjust to $1,300 dollars.

The defendant with arms folded, said "Lets see the Judge"

The court ruled against the defendant for $8,200 dollars plus court cost.

The defendant, left the courtroom in a dazed look with his head nearly in his knees.

The moral of this dispute, is to compromise.
