A unique small claims court case brought by a Honda hybrid car owner against the auto giant is rolling back into court Wednesday, with a judge seeking more information about the owner's claim that her car failed to deliver promised mileage.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Commissioner Douglas Carnahan isn't asking questions about the substance of the unusual lawsuit by Heather Peters, the owner of a 2006 hybrid Honda Civic. But he wants more information on technicalities of its filing, such as the possibility of a statute-of-limitations problem.

Carnahan asked for more legal arguments and scheduled another session of the trial in Torrance, California.

After testimony and arguments Jan. 3, the judge took the matter under submission and said he'd have a ruling soon. But he removed it from submission to get clarification.
