A Michigan-based woman tried to sue a man over a bad date for $10,000 and their court appearance turned into a wild soap opera. The woman, who appeared as QaShontae Hosomla Short-Brundidge in the Zoom video, can be seen alongside Judge Herman Marable of the 67th District Court and a man named Richard Jordan. Things went berserk after the judge said she cannot sue for “infliction of emotional distress” in a criminal court.
A Heated Argument With The Judge…
A Michigan woman named QaShontae Hosomla Short-Brundidge filed a suit against Richard Jordan for intentional infliction of emotional distress … claiming they had a less-than-perfect date.
As per the legal documents, she first filed a suit in 2020 wherein it is alleged that Richard deliberately and intentionally hurt her when he “did not show and left on [her] mother’s birthday and [her] mom had just passed away.”
During the court hearing, Richard did not say much except for the fact that this is a waste of the court’s time and said that he’s being sued for $10K because of a bad date. Things went for a toss when QaShontae and Judge Marable got into a heated argument, and he eventually ripped his face shield off to raise his voice at her as she continued to shout over him.
The judge started the proceedings by telling her that she cannot sue for “infliction of emotional distress” in a criminal court, where the case was currently being tried. After explaining to her that she needs to file this case in circuit court, things became more clear.
When the judge asked her if she intends on dropping the criminal case as she is aware that she has to file it in the civil court, she insisted that she wouldn’t drop the case, stating that she will file another case in circuit court. The judge even warned her that she cannot have two cases on the same claims, but the woman started yelling at the judge.
“I will not sit here and go back and forth with you. Can you be quiet while I talk?” Judge Marable goes on to say after several heated minutes. Finally, the court employee had to mute the conversation.
Jordan Stays Calm…
When the judge asks Jordan if he plans to represent himself in this case, the man’s ensuing confusion over the entire thing comes to a head, telling him “I thought this was just gonna be thrown out” before adding “I think this is a waste of your time.” He said:
“To be honest with you sir, I thought this was just gonna be thrown out,” Jordan deadpans to the judge. “We had a date, ONE date, and nothing else after that, and now I’m being sued for $10,000. I think this is a waste of your time.”
The judge conveyed to Jordan that he should file the appropriate motion to have the case dismissed before the woman started arguing over the definition of the word “perjury”. Judge Marable questioned the woman on “perjury” as she insisted that she had evidence that Jordan lied regarding the bad date with her.
“First of all, do you understand what perjury is?” Judge Marable asks her. “It’s a false statement made under oath. When did he lie about something that he testified about?” Jordan was seen rubbing his eyes as the woman continued to cut off the judge over everything.
In the end, the judge ultimately wrote an order to transfer the case to the 7th Circuit Court and asked the plaintiff to pay the filing fees. The woman did not ask for a jury trial, according to the paperwork, so a jury fee wasn’t applied.
