    $0.01

    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.
