This Man Filed 'Katana Sword Duel' in Settling Disputes With His Wife in Court


IllustrationIllustration - A man who is in dispute with his ex-wife in court asks to be given the right to 'fight' using a katana sword.

David Zachary Ostrom (40), a man from Poala, Kansas, United States asked the court so that he can duel with his ex-wife, Bridgette Ostrom using a sword from Japan, katana in hopes of resolving the dispute soon.

David's proposal is contained in a husband and wife dispute court document that occurred at the Judicial Institution in the District of Iowa, Shelby County, Tennessee, United States, as reported by the Des Moines Register, cited by DailyMail, (14 January 2020).

In his court documents, David mentioned that 'dueling' was never explicitly prohibited or restricted in the United States.

He argues that the method was once used by the British Court in 1818.

David asked the court to give him 12 weeks to sharpen the katana and wakizashi swords.

When contacted for confirmation, the Des Moines Register, David claimed that he got the idea when following a 2016 trial case in which the New York Supreme Court Judge Philip Minardo said that the 'duel' had not been abolished.

David added that the idea arose because of his frustration with his ex-wife lawyer named Matthew Hudson who came from Harlan, Kentucky, USA.

He gave the ex-wife two choices regarding the idea of ??a 'duel with a samurai sword'.

First, his lawyer will duel with him

Or the second, his ex-wife.
