Perry Township Small Claims Court
The Perry Township Small Claims Court is a cooperative effort between three township officials: Judge Cheryl Rivera, Constable David Taylor, and Trustee Susie Day. Judge Rivera presides over all claims presented to the court, Constable Taylor oversees order in the court room and issues all papers from the court, and Trustee Day is the fiscal officer for the court. All serve four-year terms.
Every Township in Marion County has a Small Claims Court. The Perry Township consists of an office manager, three full time clerks, and a part-time clerk. Hearing over 6,000 cases per year, the Court is designed to provide quick and easy access to persons with legal grievances with claims of $8000 or less.
Cases are required to be filed where the Defendant is located or the contract is signed. Cases involving landlord and tenant disputes must be filed in the township where the property is located.
