Wisconsin Court of Appeals
Civil Procedure — right to jury trial
Joe Sanfelippo Cab, Inc. (“Sanfelippo Cab”) appeals a small claims judgment awarding $1466.00 to Jasmail Singh for funds withheld from Singh’s salary. Sanfelippo Cab contends that it was denied its due process right to a jury trial because the small claims court conducted a bench trial, though Sanfelippo Cab was anticipating a jury trial. Because Sanfelippo Cab never requested a jury trial, and did not object to the bench trial before it began, we conclude that Sanfelippo Cab forfeited its right to a jury trial. We affirm. This opinion will not be published.
