30 days max. After that the judgement is final, and can be collected, with costs borne by the defendant. Seizing assets, having a sheriff do a till check at the parking ticket office, etc.

Can you have the judge’s decision changed if you did appear in court?

You can ask for an appeal of a Small Claims Court judgment only if you are the defendant and the judgment was made against you. You must file a Notice of Appeal (SC-140) within 30 days of the date that you received the Notice of Entry of Judgment (Small Claims) (SC-130) in court or the date it was mailed.

What can you do if you believe an error was made?

If you are the defendant or plaintiff you may ask the Small Claims Court to correct a clerical error in a judgment. You will need to file a Request to Correct or Cancel Judgment and Answer (Small Claims) (SC-108) and clearly describe the error. You must file a Request to Correct or Cancel Judgment and Answer (Small Claims) (SC-108) within 30 days of the date that you received the Notice of Entry of Judgment (SC-130) in court or the date it was mailed. You will appear before the same judge who originally heard your claim.
From the Los Angeles Superior Court Small Claims web site.

I'm not sure I'd want to go back to the same judge and ask him to reconsider - you might just piss him off and get a lower amount. As much as I think you deserve more money, I think you better take the money and run.

most likely I will take what i can get here and just move on. Its not worth my time for sure - and if I didnt get more than $3500 now, Im certainly not going to get more later.
This will be enough money for me to fix the GS to its once former glory and maybe have a little extra with which to put in the savings.
At the end of the day, I didn't get hurt, the bike escaped with less damage than I thought it would, and I (we will see...) am able to repair the bike. After considering all of those things, I have agree that normally in life you don't get off as easy.... and that's just life.
So, in many ways (once I get the check) this will be a victory but just not as much of a decisive victory as I would have liked.

Let's just hope that the big kharma wheel slowly turns and Mayor Villarregosa get's rear ended by an illegal alien while waiting at a red light in the city limo.

Good point! My bad... lets hope that His Honor steps OUT of the city limo and then is hit by the unlicensed and uninsured driver.

My buddy just texted me to look up "Illegal Everything" - I'm halfway through it, and it reminds me of eatpasta's experience with that local government, and the eventual wearing-down of anyone who goes against such an entity.

I'm no Fox News android (I refuse to watch it, or most other mainstream news media shows), but this seems really good:

Seriously!!

Why didn't you just claim it on your own full coverage insurance? They could have dealt with the gov't. No headaches.

Or didn't you have coverage?

Full coverage insurance on a motorcycle like a BMW is well over $1000 a month - so no I dont have full coverage for it. I called my insurance company and they pretty much said, "Well have fun with that"

$1000/mo for you, maybe. Your driving record must be horrendous.

Full coverage on my 06 GSA is about $40/month.

you got screwed.

same thing happened to my friends that didn't get lawyers for motorcycle accidents.

even if you pay a lawyer 33% of any settlement, you would have had more than 3,500 in your pocket cuz they know the laws and the ins and outs of those laws.
and i honestly feel judges take these more seriously when a lawyer is standing in front of them.



at this point, take the money and run. you at least got something.
