Nothing gets in the way of our fast and efficient justice system except football. An insurance company's lawyer (not even Allstate) secured a trial date postponement because he has tickets to the BCS championship game.
Apparently precedent was set by a case delayed due to the Saints/Bears game earlier this year.
If nothing else, you have to admire the attorney for criticizing the Buckeyes' speed ("Slowhio") in his request. And just so the legal system doesn't appear biased, he gamely mentioned that the plaintiff's attorneys also have tickets to the game. There was no word on whether the presiding judge would attend the game.
