The smallest lawsuit - 75 cents
Watching the original series, from what I recall the smallest lawsuit was for 75 cents. The episode was telecast sometime in 1985. What happened was, a customer ordered a soft drink for 75 cents at a convenience store and he discovered that the bottle was already open and tampered with so he brought it back but the owner refuse to refund the money or give him a new bottle. So the customer brought the store owner to court.
Eventually, Judge Wapner stated that since it was such as small amount he would grant the plaintiff $0.75.
Do you remember that trial? I sure do.
