A woman from Michigan, United States, sued a man for $10,000 for standing up on a date.

QaShontae H. Short filed a lawsuit in September 2020 against her date, Richard Jordan, and claimed that the experience caused her emotional distress because the date fell on her late mother’s birthday, per legal docs obtained by TMZ.

However, during the virtual court hearing via Zoom, judge Herman Marable Jr. told Short that she filed the lawsuit in the wrong court and that she should have filed it in circuit court.

The judge proceeded to ask the defendant, Richard Jordan, if he would be representing himself in the case.

Jordan told the judge:

To be honest with you, sir, I thought this was just going to be thrown out. We had a date – one date – and nothing else after that 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.

Short then yelled:

If he responds and his response is a lie, then it’s perjury, and my documents would prove it’s a lie.

In response, the judge said:

No, no, no. … Do you understand what perjury is?

Short replied loudly:

Please do not insult my intelligence. Do not do that. As if I don’t understand what ‘perjury’ means.

The judge was heard saying ‘Be quiet while I am talking’ at least twice during the court session.

Short ended with the following:

Bottom line is, you said it’s a criminal offense, so I will send it to circuit court. Are we done here? Are we done here? Are we done here?

Judge Marable then muted the Zoom call and transferred the suit to the 7th Circuit Court.

Court records show that Short has a history of filing lawsuits. In 2020, she sued the Flint Police Department for $300 million and also filed a suit against AT&T, all of which have since been dismissed.
