A Michigan woman is going viral after her 9 min Zoom court appearance hit the internet. The woman is suing a man for $10,000 for intentional infliction of emotional distress. She claims the man intentionally hurt her feelings when he did not show up and left her on her deceased mother’s birthday. Her mother had just passed away.
She accused the man of committing perjury in documents she presented to the court. The judge tried many, many times to explain to her that perjury can only occur under oath in a courtroom but she was not trying to hear it.
She swore up and down she understood the definition of perjury. “Please do not insult my intelligence. Do not do that. Do not insult my intelligence as if I do not understand what the word perjury means. If it’s a criminal offense then it’s a criminal offense.”
The judge transferred the case out of his court to another judge’s court so this may not be over yet.
