    Default Maryland law

    you are going to love this.


    Subject: Just wait 'till my next parking ticket...


    Subject: Re: Modern applications of ancient precedents

    There is a Judge of our local District court (who taught me Tort Law at
    the local College) who is of the opinion that Trial By Combat remains a
    valid form of Ajudicating disputes in MD and as a lawyer he actually
    entered a prayer for trial by combat (it was denied, and his client was
    acquited so he never bothered the appeal). His reasoning is thus:

    1) A part of the Maryland Constitution defines the common law of Maryland
    as the Common Law of England as of July 4, 1776

    2) In A celebrated case in England in the 1850's a litigant who was due
    to lose a huge case in desperation issued a challenge for trial by combat
    to his opponents and showed up in front of the courthouse in full armor
    at the appointed time. When the other side failed to show up he demanded
    (and got) a victory by default. A reluctant judge concluded that since
    it never been altered by statute, trial by combat was still a valid part
    of English Common Law. An emergency session of Parliment was called the
    next week to formally outlaw the practice once and for all.

    3) Maryland however, never followed suit, so technically Trial by combat
    remains "on the books" of MD Common Law...

    I can't wait to try this sometime....
