Splitting Claim

Question: If I sue in small claims court for lost wages due to breach of contract in Small Claims Court for 2 months-July and August 2012, can I then filed another lawsuit for breach of contract for lost wages from September 2012-January 2014?

Answer: Generally, no. You cannot split a cause of action and subject the defendant to multiple lawsuits like that.
