If you are sued and they receive a judgment you will owe the amount they sue for and likely they will add their legal fees on to it too (court filing costs, attorney fees, etc).
If they receive a judgment they can also garnish your wages and bank accounts.

Technically, one penny ($0.01), but in practice about $25, because suing for less than that would cost them more in fees and other expenses than it would be worth.

There is no minimum.
