My question involves small claims court in the state of: Pennsylvania
My story begins with an old friend of mine purchasing me a laptop. I was unemployed at the time and we did not set any type of repayment date or any kind of repayment at all. He claims to have video with audio of me agreeing to repay him. My question is, is that tape admissible in court as evidence? I was not made aware that there was any type of recording device in the room. I also saved a voicemail that he left threatening me and telling me that "no one hangs up on him" and I better hope that he doesn't catch me on the street.
He has a history of violence and a documented history of arrest for resisting arrest and assault.
Do I have anything to worry about if this goes to court?
