10. I could never pay this judgment.
If this is the case, that concern may be irrelevant. Don’t be intimidated by the amount that your opponent is requesting as damages. Often, this figure is dictated by a civil procedure rule or statute, and bears no relation to the opponent’s actual damages. Also, keep in mind that no one asks for the reasonable damages that they feel they are owed; in a lawsuit, they are asking for their best-case scenario. Don’t expect the amount you have asked for in damages. It’s your best-case scenario, too, and the odds are, if you go to trial or settle the lawsuit, you will receive less than you have asked for.
