An emergency session of the association of Ghanj-Rho station tenants is called to order...
Your honor, members of the council... Thank you for convening on such short notice.
Your recent acts of aggression have become impossible to ignore. In truth, you might say that we are here because your captain threatened us with violence.
Hey, all I did was let my men test-fire that orbital lance.
Moving right along, then... Your honor, we are here to help you put that violence safely in the past. Pursuant to this end, we are calling a referendum to deal with these issues.
We'll need to consult with counsel to ascertain the legality of this action.
Your honor, are you aware of the fact that the organization I represent has been authorized by governments of human space to pursue and collect bounties on attorney drones such as the one you are getting ready to consult with?
What are you talking about?
I'll make it clearer. Your honor, please step away from the attorney drone, so that we can avoid getting any of it on you.
Attorney Drone 1:
Bailiff! Return fire! Execute this human attorney!
Now that we've gotten that out of our system, I recommend that we attempt to proceed more amicably.
Those not wearing body-armor are hereby advised to keep their arguments on-topic.
Ah... Point-counterpoint. Now that's litigation.
