That's right, appealing small claims court decisions is not an automatic
process. However, district court decision can set a precedent, while small
claims or regular courts do not. Also, some arguments are more easily accepted
in district court and not in regular or small claim courts.
Let just say that I have allocated some funds and got some legal advise just in
case I will loose at small claims court and have to take the case one step
further. Luckily or unfortunately, depending on your point of view, Dell
decided to sign a reconciliation agreement with me, so no precedent was set.
