I received a letter in the mail today from Target regarding my shoplifting at their store. They're demanding nearly $800 in civil liability. This is much more than 3 TIMES the amount i'm accused of shoplifting. I was wondering if the law has a limit as to how much a store can demand in civil liability. I'm in WV.
My trail won't be for another month. I was also wondering if the lawyers and judge would consider the amount of the civil liability before imposing their own sentence (fines).
