QaShontae Short, a young woman from Michigan, US is demanding a whopping $10, 000 from a man who stood her up on their first outing.
New York Post reports that the furious woman filed the lawsuit in 2020, claiming that a man named Richard Jordan, who was supposed to take her out, failed to show up on D-Day.
She’s therefore asking the man to compensate him with $10,000 for causing her ’emotional distress.’
At the recent hearing, QaShontae caused a stir when the judge, Herman Marable Jr, refused to accept Jordan’s actions as a legally recognized 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 was 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 argued with Marable Jr. over the specifics of the case, saying she would not “dismiss” it and re-file the case in circuit court, according to a video of the hearing obtained by Complex. So, Marable Jr. transferred the case himself.
“I am ordering that this go to 7th circuit court,” he said. “Venue is to be changed because intentional infliction of emotional distress is a circuit court matter outside the jurisdiction of the district court. [The] plaintiff shall pay the filing fees in the receiving court…no further proceedings shall be had after transfer until these costs for expenses are paid.”
