On Friday, April 1st 2016 the nation of Mountain Dew was enthralled by a court case between two of its most prominent citizens.
The accuser, David.Sanders took local farmer Anna Ljungberg to court, where he accused her of violating the constitution and doing him personal damage in the process. “I feel my rights have been violated.” Said David. “And I will not stand for this.” He decided to sue and sought $2500 and a free yearly food unit as compensation.
The accused, Ms.Ljungberg, seemed extremely calm and unaffected by the accusations against her. “I think it’s pretty funny that he’s trying to sue, he has no evidence and I have nothing to be afraid of.”
However Dave’s Lawyer, Mac Fletcher, was extremely confident about this case and said that all they wanted was justice for the people of Mountain Dew. And he was sure they would get it.
Dave sued Anna on the grounds that she had sold him a food unit for $600. Which was more than double what the constitution allowed her to charge. He claimed that due to this unfair treatment he did not have enough money to buy other necessities. Additionally, he claimed Anna had egregiously violated the nation’s constitution and laws. His intrepid lawyer shocked everyone with the amount of evidence they had compiled for their suit, which included screenshots of the trades that had taken place.
Despite the overwhelming evidence the prosecution had assembled. Anna pleaded not guilty. She said that it was her own private business and she could do as she pleased. She also mentioned that in the beginning Dave offered her a smaller amount, and when she elected to reject it, he increase the offer. She claimed it was her right to refuse to sell to him, and his fault for offering her more money.
After much debate, prosecutor Kirby. Allen declared. “She was ill prepared for this case, she will have to pay a 750$ fine to Dave and another $250 fine to the government due to her lying”. Ms.L agreed to all the terms.
