How Do I Name More Than 2 Plaintiffs or Defendants?

If there are more than 2 plaintiffs or defendants in your small claims case, there will not be enough room on the Plaintiff’s Claim and Order to go to Small Claims Court (Form SC-100) to list everyone. Therefore, you need to add an attachment

  •  The attachment is Other Plaintiffs or Defendants (Form SC-100A). Opens new window

For more than 2 plaintiffs:

On your Plaintiff’s Claim and Order to go to Small Claims Court (Form SC-100): 

  1. Check the box in no. 1 that states: “Check here if more than 2 Plaintiffs and attach Form SC-100A". 
  2. Get and fill out the first part of Other Plaintiffs or Defendants (Form SC-100A). Opens new window
  3. Date, print and sign your name at the bottom of the form and attach it to your Plaintiff’s Claim and Order to go to Small Claims Court (Form SC-100).
