Colorado Judge Says NO to $23,500 Settlement in Loose Change

YouTube player

In an episode that could serve as the ultimate guide on “how not to settle a legal dispute,” a Colorado judge recently reprimanded a metal welding company for attempting to settle a $23,500 legal tab with three tons of loose change. Yeah, you heard that right: not a debit card, not a MasterCard, not even a good old-fashioned checkβ€”just cold, hard, metallic currency. Judge Joseph Finley wasn’t amused, ruling that the act was carried out “maliciously and in bad faith.” The payment came in a custom-made metal box, too heavy to even be carried by a freight elevator. The judge also added about $8,900 in legal fees to the bill, which now the welding company has to pay via “a more conventional method.”

Now, while coins are indeed legal tender, one can’t help but chuckle at the audacity of it all. The company’s unique approach to settling its debts didn’t just create a logistical nightmare for the recipient but also seemed like a rather sly way to stick it to the manβ€”or in this case, the subcontractor. So much for being a smooth operator in a litigious society. Still, in a world where everyone is buttoned-up and playing it safe, it’s almost refreshing to see a welding company bringing a little mischief to the mix. Sure, it cost them an extra $8,900, but hey, can you really put a price on a good laugh?
