There isn't a case that can't be won, but...there also isn't a case that can't be lost. If you can reach an agreement to settle your differences without going to court, you can better control the outcome. Try to work it out, and remember to be reasonable...and "give" a little.
Going to court and getting a judgment doesn't mean you'll ever get a dime, some people have little to lose and you can't get blood from turnips. I'm not a fan of giving an overworked judge a chance of messing things up....I'd rather settle out of court.
Two things for you, Pink.
One, here is a link to the Minnesota statute that governs all of this: https://www.revisor.mn.gov/statutes/?id=504B
Two, if you want to jump on my website below and shoot me a quick email, I will send you a copy of the booklet put out by the Minnesotat Attorney General's office called "Landlords and Tenants: Rights and Responsibilities".
I hope this helps you,
