It's awesome that you took him to court and won. He should have done the right thing and made his son pay for it or pay for it himself. But he's looking like a dumb ass.
What exactly happened in court?
How long sis this process take?
He never even involved his son, he claimed he was trying to protect him. I never saw the kid when I met with his father to try to resolve it, my mother and I only received empty threats so we got up and left.
He tried to get it dismissed in court, he was asking questions in such a way to try to make me and my witnesses look bad when they were on the stand. When I was walking into the courtroom, he sat on a bench and said hello to me. I turned around and said "Hello, where's your son?"
His son was conveniently recovering from dental surgery, when they had been served nearly 2 months prior of the court date and had plenty of notice.
Honestly, it seems like its more the father's fault, not the kid's fault, because I can see where the son gets it and how he's been raised. I wouldn't be surprised if the father went home and told his son that they won.
To make sure his son knows what happened, the next time I see him, I'm going to personally give him a copy of the judgment, tell him I forgive him for pushing my bike over, smile, and walk away.
