A woman is suing a man who reportedly stood her up on a date in 2020 for $10,000 in damages in Michigan.

The woman, QaShontae Short, has filed a lawsuit against Richard Jordan, suing him for US$10,000 for intentional infliction of emotional distress, on the grounds that the man had deliberately hurt her by standing her up and not showing up for their date in 2020. She claimed in her lawsuit that the experience caused her emotional distress because the date fell on her late mother's birthday, Fox News reported.

During a recent 10-minute virtual court hearing in Flint, Michigan, Judge Herman Marable Jr. asked Jordan if he would be representing himself.

"To be honest with you, sir, I thought this was just going to be thrown out. We had a date — one date — and… now I’m being sued for US$10,000. I don’t think this is going to go any further, and I think it’s a waste of your time," he said.

Meanwhile, Short got into an argument with the judge and started yelling at him during the virtual court hearing about the case.

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

"No, no, no… do you understand what perjury is?" Marable responded.

"Please do not insult my intelligence. Do not do that. Do not insult my intelligence, as if I don’t understand what ‘perjury’ means," Short replied.

She later learned that she had filed the case in the wrong court.

"[The] bottom line is, you said it's a criminal offense, so I will send it to circuit court. Are we done here?" Short asked.

Even though Marable tried to explain that she didn't understand, she continued to yell, "Are we done here? Are we done here? Are we done here?"

After getting tired of Short’s complaints, Marable muted the Zoom call and transferred the suit to circuit court. He then demanded that the plaintiff should foot the filing fees for the case and added that her suit will be thrown out if the filing fees are not paid within 56 days, New York Post reported.

In 2020, Short also sued the Flint Police Department for US$300 million and filed a suit against AT&T. However, all these lawsuits have since been dismissed.
