An American man asked a judge to be in sword fight with his ex-wife and her attorney in a trial by combat that will settle their ongoing legal dispute.
David OstromÂ said in court that his former wife, Bridgette Ostrom and her attorney, Matthew Hudson, had â€śdestroyed (him) legallyâ€ť.
Ostrom, who is said to be a die-hardÂ Game of ThronesÂ fan, also requested a 12 weeks lead time before the trial by combat date so he may have one Katana and one Wakizashi sword forged for use,Â MetroÂ reports.
“Theyâ€™ve tried to ignore me and not address equal custody, and I think this puts a spotlight on them,” he said.
“Iâ€™ve kind of run out of options now and no one pays attention to what I think is a hardship on myself and my children,” he added.
Judge Craig Dreismeier said in his own filing Monday that he wonâ€™t be issuing a decision anytime soon, citing irregularities with both sidesâ€™ motions and responses.
â€śUntil 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,â€ť the judge said.
