    Default Defendant Requested Small Claims Case Be Cancelled and Case Moved to Jury Trial

    My question involves court procedures for the state of: Oregon

    I'm trying to figure out what to do.

    I purchased a trailer from someone. They disclosed in e-mail that the unit had no leaks. After picking up the trailer, I found out that they didn't winterize the trailer which caused the water pipes to bust. it also had a propane leak.

    I filed a small claims case against them. They decided they wanted a jury trial, so no i have to file a formal complaint. I think they are playing poker with me. They had to pay about $250 to request a jury trial, but get that money back if I don't respond.

    I'm being told by lawyers that it could cost upwards of 4k to represent me on this case. If I lose, then it makes this deal that much worse.

    Is it easy to file a case pro se?

    Does this sound like misrepresentation and or breach of contract?

    I suspect not, but that's something you're going to have to assess based upon your own aptitudes.

    Breach of contract, fraud, breach of express warranty.... What does the bill of sale say? ("As is"?)
