A: How were you damaged by the solicitation? Were you only inconvenienced, or did you suffer severe mental or physical pain and anguish? Unless you were severely affected, it isn't worth suing. You can't sue an out of state company in small claims court, you would have to sue in District Court where the court costs would be a minimum $180.00. They would have to hire a lawyer, so you would be outgunned from the start. They might have legal defenses such as the person who did this (if you can even prove the identity of this person and that they were an actual employee of Vivint) was not authorized by their instructions to remain on your property after observing the sign. You are better off filing a complaint against them with your HOA or City, in my opinion, unless you have evidence of severe damages such as a heart attack or panic attack that required treatment from a medical or mental health provider. If you have such damages, consult a personal injury attorney.
