TAMPA, Fla. - A federal judge, miffed at the inability of opposing attorneys to agree on even the slightest details of a lawsuit, ordered them to settle their latest dispute with a game of “rock, paper, scissors.”

The argument was over a location to take the sworn statement of a witness in an insurance lawsuit.

Does this mean do-overs and double sealed times infinity no do-overs will become legal tools now. :D

Good for this judge. Attorneys need to take a page from the past and remember that they are only representing enemies -- they don't have to become enemies themselves. The bar should be a brotherhood, and we should seek to play fair with our brothers. If they call in advance and need an extra day on that pleading, give it to them. If they wouldn't be entitled to a continuance but you know they need one for a good reason, don't fight it.

Back in the 1800's, RPS was a legal binding contract and a was a meanse to settle any dispute. Its about time a judge went throwback with it.
