Shumanay brings this week's case against her husband Jon. A chronic illness has long prevented Shumanay from engaging in strenuous physical activity, but recent improvements in her condition have allowed her to take up running. She would like to take advantage of her new abilities by participating in a long-distance endurance run with obstacles, but Jon objects to the plan, citing possible threats to Shumanay's health and a belief that Shumanay's chosen race is silly and embarrassing. Who is in the right? Judge John Hodgman decides.

This was a solid ruling. I'm surprised that the Judge didn't call attention to the fact that, while John objected to the endurance race on the basis that Shumanay did not like to be cold and wet, the alternative sporting activities he suggested were skiing and surfing -- both decidedly cold, wet pursuits.

I just have to say how much Shumanay's plea to Judge Hodgman about being able to have autonomy over her own body now that she sees some glimpse of health sunlight resonated with me. I was listening to this at the train station today and I got a tad emotional amongst the laughs. Good ruling. Great episode.
