The Plaintiff has demanded payment...

Recommended Posts

"The Plaintiff has demanded payment of said sum and the Defendant has refused to pay the same and no part thereof has been paid."

I am preparing to sue in Illinois Small Claims Court and I'm having a problem with this part of the form. Do I need to demand payment BEFORE filing this lawsuit?

The lawsuit is to a utility company for failing to comply with the FCRA and FCBA.

They could have been totally wrong, but I asked my court clerk about this part and she looked utterly confused. She ended up saying that statutory damages alone couldn't be filed in Small Claims Court. :?

I'd go up to your clerk's desk, be super nice, and ask them about it.

Unless, there's an IL expert on board that wants to help out.
