What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Michigan
I filed a small claims case against my previous employer (two weeks ago) who withheld approximately $3000 from my pay. This weekend, I received a letter from his attorney for a "Demand and removal of case" to be moved to circuit court. I purposely filed in small claims so I wouldn't have to pay for a lawyer/attorney, and so that I could represent myself. My previous employer has deep pockets and I'm sure he's doing this to force me to spend money.
I want this case to stay in small claims. Am I forced to let this go to circuit court? Or do I have a say in this?
Thanks for any help,
