Court of Uncommon Pleas

As the clock struck noon, Judith advanced to the Plaintiff’s area using the required hopskotch steps. Came the voice: “All bust a move for the Honorable Mike Drop!” The disco ball came down over the floor, and for one brief moment, everyone in the courtroom got their groove on. Judith made sure to follow the wriggling dance moves that would show movement without leaving her designated area, as her attorney had suggested. Abruptly, the music stopped, the disco ball retracted, and everyone (save one slightly embarrassed man) found a seat. “And now for the case of Judith Applecoat vs. A-1 Enchanted Jewelry Company. Plaintiff alleges that she was seen while wearing a ring that was guaranteed to make her invisible. Before hearing the arguments, would either party like to use any special game tokens?” Came the reply: “Yes, your honor,” from Sal Peacock from A-1. “I would like to use a dismissal token.” The judge replied, “Very well then. Case dismissed. Now let’s get this party started.” The disco ball came down, and everyone got their groove back on. Judith’s attorney had warned her that this might happen.
