David v Goliath: How to beat a big hospital (using small claims court)

23 minutes

In a classic—and hilarious—David vs. Goliath story, Jeffrey Fox takes on a huge hospital over an outrageous bill, and wins.


He's a bit of an expert in using small claims court to get satisfaction, and he's got detailed instructions for all of us.


Here's his first lesson: The other side—no matter how big they are, and no matter what they say to you—doesn't actually get to make the rules. Not the LEGAL rules.


The details of how he got to victory in this case are super-entertaining, and super-satisfying.
