CT Small Claims Filing Fee To Increase?

The best bargain for Connecticut residents in terms of resolving minor disputes are small claims courts.

Right now, for $35 and often not marshal fees a person can get their day in court before a magistrate.

The CT Law Tribune is reporting that the legislature is looking to raise the court entry fee to $60.

Even at $60 bringing a small claims action is a bargain.  Serving papers alone in Superior Court costs more than $60.

Of all places the legislature can raise fees, this one makes sense.
