Look at this US judgement for a laugh?

In the US Court case of Avista Management v. Wausau Underwriters Insurance, US Dist. Court Mid. Dist.Fla ( 6th June, 2006) A hotel investment firm sued an insurance company for allegedly not paying an insurance claim fast enough after a hurricane.
Lawyers could not agree on some issues and the judge was not impressed and in a written ruling stated :
[T]he Court will fashion a new form of alternative dispute resolution, to wit: at 4:00 P.M. on Friday, June 30, 2006 counsel shall convene at a neutral site agreeable to both parties. If counsel cannot agree on a neutral site, they shall meet on the front steps of the [Courthouse]. Each lawyer shall be entitled to be accompanied by one paralegal who shall act as an attendant and witness. At that time and location, counsel shall engage in one (1) game of "rock, paper, scissors". The winner of this engagement shall be entitled to select the location for the 30 (b)(6) deposition to be held somewhere in Hillsborough County during the period July 11-12, 2006"
