Governor Brown has signed a law raising the upper limits for some small claims actions. Beginning (presumably) January 1, 2012, the upper limit for some small claims court actions will be $10,000 for individuals (though only twice each calendar year). The limit for bodily injury claims against insured drivers is still $7500. Corporations or businesses owned by more than one person (LLCs or partnerships) will still be limited to $5000 for each claim.
