    Back in December, we’re reported on Heather Peters, an owner of a 2006 Honda Civic Hybrid that was taking Honda to court due to the vehicle never achieving the official EPA fuel mileage ratings. But instead of taking Honda to the circuit court with lawyers, Peters filed the case against Honda at a small claims court. The reasoning behind it; she would have a better shot of winning the case. Peter’s case was to be heard on January 3rd.

    Now, the court has reached a decision on her case. On Wednesday, the court ruled in the favor of Peters and awarded her $9,867 in damages.

    “I am absolutely thrilled. It’s a victory for Civic Hybrid owners and consumers everywhere! Sometimes big justice comes in small packages,” Peters wrote in a email to the New York Times.

    Honda spokesman, Chris Martin said the company plans on appealing the judgement.
