    Need to know where would I file suit. I read the small claims information page and it said it has to be at the defendents place. So if my CA is in Dallas and I live in Houston, does that mean I have file the suit in Dallas?

    You may want to do a little research in to TX jurisdiction. For instance, here in Calif. you can sue a defendant business in your (the plaintiff's) venue, even if the defendant's registered address is on the other side of the state.

    Again, check TX's requirements first. Try Findlaw.com.
