Kansas man requests 'trial by combat' to settle custody battle with ex-wife

quote [ 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." ]

I'm REALLY hoping the judge sets precedent and allows this

Kansas Man 2020!

Florida Man wouldn't ask for a judge's ruling first.

Allow it, but let her choose her own weapon. I suggest tank.

Only if she pays for its usage herself.

"I demand a Trial by Tampon. The first to locate and purchase the appropriate type and amount for 3 different women shall prevail."

The judge should allow it but, since he is challenging a chick, she can be represented by a champion of her choice.
