A young woman known as QaShontae Short dragged a man to court over his failure to show up for a planned date.
QaShontae Short had filed the lawsuit in 2020 claiming that a man named Richard Jordan who was meant to take her out stood her up on the D-Day, New York Post reports.
The frustrated woman demanded that he compensates her with $10,000.
QaShontae caused a stir at the recent hearing after the judge Herman Marable Jr refused to accept that Jordan’s action was a legally recognised crime.
According to court documents, she had claimed that he “did not show and left on her mother’s birthday and her mom had just passed away.”
The suit she slammed on Jordan was for ‘intentional’ infliction of emotional distress. But during the court case which held via Zoom, QaShontae vented when the presiding judge said it was not justifiable in district court and advised it be brought to circuit court.
Short claimed that Jordan perjured himself based on her claim that he lied about going on the date with her, but Marable stated in anger that Short cannot determine that.
The judge, then, ordered the claim to be moved to a circuit court after Short had both been muted and jumped off the Zoom call.
