Lawyer Wants To Settle Fraud Case ‘Game Of Thrones-Style’ With A Trial By Combat And HELL YES THEY SHOULD!

A Staten Island lawyer wants to get medieval on someone’s ass, literally, and is requesting that a case in which he’s the defendant. Attorney Richard Luthmann believes the case against him is so ridiculous that the case should be treated as such and instead of battling it out in a court room, he wants to fight to the death. Just like in Game of Thrones...

The allegations made by plaintiffs, aided and abetted by their counsel, border upon the criminal,” Richard A. Luthmann wrote in a brief recently filed in state Supreme Court, St. George. “As such, the undersigned (Luthmann) respectfully requests that the court permit the undersigned to dispatch plaintiffs and their counsel to the Divine Providence of the Maker for Him to exact His divine judgment once the undersigned has released the souls of the plaintiffs and their counsel from their corporeal bodies, personally and or by way of a champion.

In regular, non-lawyer terms — Luthmann wants a fight to the death, Game of Thrones-style. Act shocked — he loves the show.

Luthmann is being sued because “he told a former client to move his money around so as to make it unreachable by creditors.” This is incredibly illegal and Luthmann denies doing anything wrong. He’s claiming he’s the scapegoat in the entire scam.

Now I ask, you the jury, would a man who wants to settle a case like a fictional TV show do anything crazy?!?

Case closed.
