Michigan Woman Sues for Bad Date, Yells at Judge in Court

A Michigan woman is suing a man for $10,000 claiming he stood her up on a date, thus intentionally inflicting “emotional distress” because the planned date fell on her late mother’s birthday. In 2020.

At a recent court appearance, held over Zoom, QaShontae Short insisted that her date’s responses to questions were lies and even yelled at the judge about the definition of perjury, WJBK reported.

Judge Herman Marable Jr asked the date, Richard Jordan, if he intended to represent himself.

“To be honest with you sir, I thought this was going to get thrown out. We went on one date — one date — and now I’m being sued for $10,000. I don’t think this is going to go any further and I think it’s a waste of your time,” Jordan said.[

Short, however, insisted that she knew what she was doing, chastising Marable at one point for insulting “my intelligence as if I don’t understand what perjury means.”

Marable had his technical crew mute Short’s audio when she continued to talk over him, but she never stopped talking, even while muted.

In the end, Marable told Short that she’d filed in the wrong court, after which she repeatedly yelled, “Are we done here?” while the judge tried to explain.
