Claims Between $10,001.00 - $50,000.00
A Law Minor “LM” case number shall be assigned to tort, contract, and a variety of other actions in which the damages sought are $50,000 or less. The amount of damages contained in the complaint pursuant to Supreme Court Rule 222, excluding interest and costs, determines the category, not the amount of the verdict or judgment. Note that tort, contract, or tax collection cases in which the damages sought are $10,000 or less are assigned a SC number.
This list of subcategories is not intended to be comprehensive: rather, it is intended to illustrate the kinds of actions that are to be filed under the Law Minor "LM" category.
