Man requests trial by combat with Japanese swords in battle against ex-wife

Man requests trial by combat with Japanese swords in battle against ex-wife – but asks the judge for 12-weeks lead-in time so he can forge or source the metal. 

A man locked in a court battle with his former wife has requested trial by combat with Japanese swords to solve the dispute. 

David Ostrom, 40, from Paola, Kansas said he would give his ex-wife Bridgette Ostrom, 38, the choice of an attorney or a 'stand-in fighter' to battle him. 

He argued in court documents that dueling had never been 'explicitly banned or restricted' in the United States. He pointed out to the Iowa District Court in Shelby County that the method had been used 'as recently as 1818 in British Court.' 

Ostrom told the Des Moines Register that his inspiration came from a 2016 case in which New York Supreme Court Justice Philip Minardo admitted that duels had not been abolished. 

In the documents, Ostrom expressed a desire to meet his ex-wife and her attorney 'on the field of battle where (he) will rend their souls from their corporal bodies.' He added that his wife, from Harlan, had 'destroyed (him) legally.'

He asked Iowa District Court to give him 12 weeks 'lead time' to allow him to source or forge katana and wakizashi swords.

Is this real? :air: Dailymail doesn't really post joke articles (as far as I am aware), but I am having trouble believing this. (Nothing against you, of course.)

STAN: Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, Madonna, Nicki Minaj, Britney Spears, and Froy Gutierrez.

I didn't watch this TV show, but let's hope this battle won't be Game of Thrones-y.
