It provides a checklist for trial; offers a preparation list of dos and don’ts, and provides commentary on when and in what circumstances the court may take judicial notice of facts. The volume, which contains well over 1000 pages, includes ready-to-use-forms, charts, and the actual text of the Small Claims Court Rules. Included are legislative amendments with case law to illustrate amendments, as well as information covering bankrupt individuals and how to obtain a bankruptcy record.
