Boy we got some bad judges out there. This is crazy, two big companies being embarassed by a moran judge. Why not binding arbritration?

Now, if we could just get lawyers to start settling minor disputes via duels or death-cage matches...

I believe you have misinterpreted the article. Apparently the two moran lawyers can not agree on even the smallest issues--in this instance the place where one of the witnesses will give his statement.

It is the physical location of this statement that is being decided by "rock, paper, scissors", not the case itself.

Seems to me to be an entirely appropriate slap-in-the-face wakeup call to these clowns who are needlessly protracting this trial in six minute increments.

I think more judges need the power to say: "Attorneys... this case should have been OVER three days ago... If it's not over in another 3 hours, I"m going to have the bailiff take you out behind the courthouse and beat the crap out of you BOTH... You have a 10 minute recess to work out your differences!".

I think the ruling is great. The judge is merely treating the attorneys appropriately to their behavior. "Fine," sez the judge. "You two are going to behave like a couple of schoolboys, you can settle it like a couple of schoolboys."

Edit: Next step should be atomic wedgies.

"And in this corner... Baliff Mongo... with SEVEN professional censures for excessive force, and one commendation for ripping an offenders arm CLEAN off..."

Defense Attorney: "Your honor.. at this time my client wishes to change his plea from "not guilty because his mommy did drugs" to "Guilty"....

My friend's maiden name was Moran. She hated having people call her "Moron."

Ahem. Were you others just spelling it "moran" because the first guy did? Or...?
