HAWK CITY – Today, King Adam filed a civil suit in the Crown Court of Überstadt, with opposition leader Daniel of Korea and communist opposition member David of Edmount listed as defendants.
The suit is a tort action alleging that the legislators threatened to overthrow His Majesty, shouting such remarks at him as “You’re going down!” The king claims that these threats, having been made by individuals possessing great power within the Kingdom, made him “distressed to the point of believing that the defendants were in fact conspiring…against him.” The complaint, which was served today along with a writ of summons, also claims that the king feared for his position on the throne.
His Majesty has requested one USD in punitive damages from each defendant, as well as a prohibitory injunction to forbid them from making further threats. David of Edmount stated that he wishes His Majesty to “defend [his] manhood” and settle the dispute with a physical fight. The king replied, “I will defend my manhood in a court of law,” and then reminded the former that an automatic ruling in the plaintiff’s favor could be made if the complaint went unanswered.
Both defendants are commonly believed by Überstadtis to have run for Parliament for the sole purpose of attempting to usurp the king of power. The throne is expected to remain safe, however, due to the minority status of the fringe parties that oppose the monarchy.
