Dude wanted sword combat with his ex over a custody dispute
Way to go, bro! The real decision of a real man!
Apparently, David Ostrom had no other options left as he was totally exhausted with the fights in the court with the ex’s lawyer who went on and on till he turned the guy’s life into hell. The fact actually made his ex-wife quite happy.
So, having been driven to the total madness by the anal attorney, poor fellow addressed to Iowa court for the permission to organize a duel with his ex-wife leaving her the right to choose the type of sword, preferably Japanese. Ostrom explained to the judge that he was destroyed legally, mentally, and physically by the whole custody rigamarole that fucking bitch had made him go through.
You are not gonna believe it, folks, but it appears to be legal in the US. Well, it’s not like legal “legal” but it’s not prohibited. So, if you are trapped in the corner by your ex, consider the option. Back in 2015 in New York, an attorney claimed to settle some financial lawsuit using the same method. The guy was inspired by The Games of Thrones and had pretty much the same reasons as Ostrom – to fight the absurd back with even bigger absurd.
Ostrom actually went as far as offering the ex-wife’s attorney to represent her not only in the court but in the duel as a stand-in fighter to finally put an end to all this fuss. Guess what – the attorney denied, pulling a grammar nazi instead. The only thing that son of a bitch could do was to make fun of spelling mistakes in the claim. What a mean streak of a loser! He basically cried craven, when he demanded to completely restrict Ostrom’s right to see his children.
At the very least the guy in despair acted like a man, not a pussy-whipped loser!
