TAMPA - A federal judge, apparently irate at attorneys who could not agree on the slightest details of a lawsuit, has ordered them to resolve their latest dispute the old fashioned way – a round of rock-paper-scissors.

In an order signed Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Gregory Presnell, of Orlando, scolded the lawyers for their inability to agree on a location in Hillsborough County where they can take the sworn statement of a witness.

Both sides, Presnell ordered, must now meet at a neutral location at 4 p.m. on June 30 for a game of rock-paper-scissors. Should they not agree on a neutral location, they will play the game on the steps of Tampa’s federal courthouse, at 801 N. Florida Ave. One attorney from each side must show up with a paralegal as a witness.

The winner of a single game will choose the location for the witness’s statement.

The lawsuit, filed by Avista Management, alleges that Wausau Underwriters Insurance didn’t pay insurance claims on time.


Well now this is quite entertaining. hopefully they will reveal the location where this game of rocks paper scissors will be played so that i may go down and watch them carry out their duties LOL

Man this is pretty funny, who says judges don't have a sense of humor.

*said tongue-in-cheek*

Couldn't the judge use this problem of not being able to agree on a meeting place in a timely manner against Wausau Underwriters in the court case? They don't pay their claims on time and they can't make a decision about a neutral meeting place on time?

I do think this is a creative way of deciding where they are going to hold the meeting though.
