Duel!

I'm all in favor of stuff that screws lawyers out of collecting fees, but this is ridiculous:
A California recreational vehicle dealer says he wants to resolve the lawsuit actor Taylor Lautner filed against him with a push-up contest instead of a trial.

Brent McMahon, 47, owner of McMahon's RV in Irvine, said he wants to settle the lawsuit brought against him by the "Twilight" film series star, who claims the dealership failed to deliver a $300,000 customized RV on time and up to his specifications, with a contest of muscles instead of legal wrangling, KTLA-TV, Los Angeles, reported Tuesday.
The story implies that the RV dealer would have to pay the actor if Lautner won the contest, but it doesn't specify what the penalty would be if the opposite happened. I would like to think it would involve the whole "Twilight" thing never, ever being mentioned again, but that's probably not realistic.
