The Magistrate Court of Douglas County handles claims under $15,000 and garnishment actions. A Magistrate Judge holds a hearing to decide each case.
You may file a claim in Magistrate Court without an attorney. You may have an attorney represent you, at your own expense, if you choose.
The Court does not appoint attorneys for civil cases. Either a person or a business may be sued.
If the defendant is a corporation, you must sue the corporation itself, rather than someone who works for the corporation. The Registered Agent for the corporation may be served for the corporation.
