    Is this the end of frivolous lawsuits?

    A lawyer accused of aiding a client in fraud has asked the New York Supreme Court to allow him to settle the case with a fight to the death!

    The court filing states: "Defendant invokes the common law writ of right and demands his common law right to Trial By Combat as against plaintiffs and their counsel, whom plaintiff wishes to implead into the Trial By Combat by writ of right."

    One thing to note is that the New York Supreme Court, because New York is New York and has to be difficult, is indeed the lowest (trial) court in New York. The top level is the New York Court of Appeals.
