Judge orders a game of 'rock, paper, scissors' to settle dispute

Priceless!

Judge orders a game of 'rock, paper, scissors' to settle dispute
Posted 6/9/2006 8:37 AM ET
TAMPA (AP) A federal judge, miffed at the inability of opposing attorneys to agree on even the slightest details of a lawsuit, ordered them to settle their latest dispute with a game of "rock, paper, scissors."

The argument was over a location to take the sworn statement of a witness in an insurance lawsuit.

In an order signed Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Gregory Presnell scolded both sides and ordered them to meet at a neutral location at 4 p.m. June 30 to play a round of the hand-gesture game often used to settle childhood disputes. If they can't agree on the neutral location, he said, they'll play on the steps of the federal courthouse.

The winner gets to choose the location for the witness statement.

"We're going to have to do it," said David Pettinato, lead attorney for the plaintiff, Avista Management. "I guess I'd better bone up on 'rock, paper, scissors' rules."

Last year, officials of the auction houses Christie's and Sotheby's engaged in the game to decide who would get to sell a $17.8 million collection of art offered by a Japanese electronics company. Christie's won.

And you all made fun of Bob Dole's membership in the World RPS Society! As a member, Bob Dole would be entitled to determine the number of rounds to be played.

Bob Dole would go with a best of 9107 match.

Unbelieveable...I guess those lawyers needed to get their billable hours up or something.

I'll bet there's a pattern on which selection is more likely to win. I'll bet that if you have a thousand people pick rock, paper, or scissors, one will show up more or less than the others.

Hang on. This is a good poll idea.

I'm guessing that rock is selected most frequently. Paper is the best strategy.

My initial hypothesis is that scissors would be the most commonly selected, but your idea has merit. Rock is more or less a baseline since it requires no finger movement to implement.

I always get nervous throwing scissors because getting crushed seems a lot more painful than getting covered or cut.
