If a judgement goes against you and in favor of the Bureau of Automotive Repair, it is not necessarily the end. You still have a right to appeal. It may be that you didn’t use an attorney (big mistake) and decided to “go it alone”. Maybe you did use an attorney. Either way, you still have the right of appeal.
