Kansas man requests ‘trial by combat’ with swords to settle custody battle with ex-wife
By Associated Press, 14 January 2020
HARLAN, Iowa (AP) – A Kansas man has asked an Iowa judge to let him engage in a sword fight with his ex-wife and her attorney so that he can “rend their souls” from their bodies.
David Ostrom, 40, of Paola, Kansas, said in a Jan. 3 court filing that his former wife, Bridgette Ostrom, 38, of Harlan, Iowa, and her attorney, Matthew Hudson, had “destroyed (him) legally.” The Ostroms have been embroiled in disputes over custody and visitation issues and property tax payments.
The judge had the power to let the parties “resolve our disputes on the field of battle, legally,” David Ostrom said, adding in his filing that trial by combat “has never been explicitly banned or restricted as a right in these United States.”
What a beautiful idea! Women are at least as strong as men so Ex-Wife Barbie can’t object on grounds of infirmity.
He also asked the judge for 12 weeks’ time so he could secure Japanese samurai swords.
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 absurdity with my own absurdity,” Ostrom said, adding that his former wife could choose Hudson to act as her champion.
Win-Win negotiation at its finest! And no, there’s nothing absurd about this. If a man cannot defend himself with money then justice demands he be allowed… alternatives. This article clearly implies that while Wifey is lawyered up, Hubby is representing himself.
Hudson argued in his legal response that because a duel could end in death, “such ramifications likely outweigh those of property tax and custody issues.” Hudson asked the judge to reject the request for trial by combat.
How like a male feminist to plead craven! Hudson will steal the sweat off an innocent man’s brow and his children out of his home, but only so long as he himself faces no consequences.
Judge Craig Dreismeier said in his own filing Monday that he won’t be issuing a decisions anytime soon, citing irregularities with both sides’ motions and responses.
Hmm… that wasn’t a rejection.
“Until the proper procedural steps to initiate a court proceeding are followed, this court will take no further action concerning any motion, objection or petition filed by either party at this time,” the judge said.
