 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77158128


DES MOINES – A Kansas man has asked an Iowa court to grant his motion for trial by combat so he can meet his ex-wife and her attorney "on the field of battle where (he) will rend their souls from their corporal bodies."

David Ostrom, 40, of Paola, Kansas, claims in court documents that his ex-wife, Bridgette Ostrom, 38, of Harlan, has "destroyed (him) legally."

He asked the Iowa District Court in Shelby County to give him 12 weeks "lead time" in order to source or forge katana and wakizashi swords, as first reported by the Carroll Times Herald.

oooflash Technically speaking it could be possible. "To this day, trial by combat has never been explicitly banned or restricted as a right in these United States," Ostrom argues in court records, adding that it was used "as recently as 1818 in British Court."

However it's usually the other side that gets to choose the weapons.

Biblical divorce the woman leaves without the children as it should be.

the fact that modern divorce courts attack the children first as do the Ex-Wives shows who they really work for.

Per the rules I believe he can challenge her or by proxy the attorney.

If she accepted then they (wife & attorney) would be able to choose the how. Sword or gun etc.

Yes. An interesting way to discern truth (natural law) is to learn it is the opposite of what the enemy does.
