Burlington, NC asked in Appeals / Appellate Law for Mississippi

Q: appeal

My issue is that I borrowed $1,000 from a loan place and it was a 90 day no interest. I was a few days late on the payment and they said that I had defaulted on the loan. So I just continued the monthly payments. I ended up in the hospital having a baby and was unable to make the payment because I was in the hospital. They ended up taking me to court. They wanted me to pay $1900 worth of penalty fees and the judge ruled in my favor to only pay the difference of what I only owed them which is $440. So now they have appealed the judges ruling. Do you think they will over turn the judges ruling

A: It really depends on the circumstances. Judge's are given a certain level of discretion when issuing judgments, particularly when it comes to collection or breach of contract claims.
