A Paola, KS, man is requesting a sword fight with his ex-wife and her attorney in order to settle ongoing disputes in their divorce proceedings.
According to The Guardian, David Ostrom, 40, maintains in a Jan. 3 legal filing, that his ex-wife and her attorney have “destroyed (him) legally” and that trial by combat has never specifically been banned in the US. Ostrom also requested 12 weeks time in order to obtain samurai swords for the proposed battle.
The attorney, Matthew Hudson, of course filed a motion dismissing Ostrom’s motion.
Added The Guardian:
The Ostroms have been embroiled in disputes over custody and visitation issues and property tax payments.
His motion filed in Shelby county district court stemmed from his frustrations with his ex-wife’s attorney, Ostrom told The Des Moines Register.
“I think I’ve met Mr Hudson’s [the ex-wife’s attorney] absurdity with my own absurdity,“ Ostrom said, adding that his former wife could choose Hudson to act as her champion.
The judge issued his own filing indicating that he would not be ruling on the previous motions in the near future, “citing irregularities with both sides’ motions and responses.”
Nothing but irregularities, perhaps?
Anyway, I’ll file this as another sign of the end times curated by Cheetolini and his band of glue sniffers. As someone who grew up in Kansas, I can’t say any of this really surprises me.
