On this episode of Court Appointed, Mike and Tommy discuss the ancient justice method called Trial by Ordeal or Trial by Battle. Imagine being charged with a crime you didn't commit but you have no way to prove it. That's OK, just challenge your accuser to a fair fight and the outcome decides your innocence. Makes more sense than a lot of other things in the law !! The Court is now in Session with music, "Doctor, Lawyer, Indian Chief" by MCRB.
