If your damage is the result of an intentional wrongdoing, such as fraud, libel, slander, malicious destruction of property, or assault and battery, you cannot bring your action in the small claims division of the district court unless the wrongdoing is for a dishonored check, consumer protection violation, or recreational trespass. You cannot use the small claims division of the district court if: 1) your case is against the State of Michigan or a state agency, 2) your case is against a local governmental unit that involves issues of governmental immunity, 3) you are an assignee or third-party beneficiary of the obligation, or 4) you have filed more than five small claims cases in the same week.The maximum you can collect through a judgment in the small claims division of the district court is $6,000.
