Yes, if someone faces an appeal, we will advixe about that.
You are assuming that all states have the same laws for small claims court. The first thing we ask, when advising someone is "what state are you in?"
When you post a general statement like this, saying most courts allow this, it makes people think there is no use doing anything to stop these people. That is just not so. There are obstacles, no one says there aren't. But that doesn't mean it can't be done. So far, 9 times out of 10, they back down BEFORE the court date, anyway. However, as Why Chat stated so eloquently, LOL, "How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time." So the idea is to take one action, see how they respond, then take the next. One cannot anticipate the outcome, whether good or bad. All courts and judges are different. So, it's one thing at a time. But deciding not to do anything because one person encountered a defeat xx years ago is to remain a victim.
If I recall, your original post said anyone who files in small claims is a fool. I would say anyone who chooses to do nothing because the possibility of failure exists, is a fool.
