This just in, for you hardcore rock paper scissors fans:
Legal Dispute to Be Settled By 'Rock, Paper, Scissors' Match
When two attorneys could not agree about where to take the sworn statement of a witness, a federal judge in Florida ordered them to settle their dispute by using the game of rock, paper, scissors "as a new form of alternative dispute resolution."
Matti Leshem, co-commissioner for the USA Rock Paper Scissors League, thinks it is a positive moment for the world when anyone uses rock paper scissors to adjudicate a dispute. He does have some concerns, though, about the rules that will be used, such as the number of pumps before the throw or if "illegal" throws will be allowed.
To make sure official USARPS rules are followed, Lesham and his staff are willing to fly down to Florida to oversee the match so that rock, paper, scissors is not made a mockery by the legal system. "When people take rock, paper, scissors into their own hands," he said, "mayhem can occur."
The USA Rock Paper Scissors League is getting ready for its national championship on June 12, 2006, where the winner will receive $50,000. The tournament will air on A&E.
