Peeps Eviction Lawsuit Delayed
The timing was too deliciously good to stick. The courtroom showdown over a Colorado woman who was evicted from her apartment for refusing to pay rent after her display of Easter decorations, including the cutest damned snacks in the world, Marshmallow Peeps, was removed by her landlord, has been continued until June.
The trial had initially been slated to start yesterday, and, as reported at Lowering the Bar, has some serious entertainment value potential, including witnesses who intend to testify about the artistic merit of Peeps displays. Can that really be denied, though?
The Peeps controversy got some hilarious coverage on "The Colbert Report," back in September. And also some scarily serious coverage on the Lynn v. Sekulow blog.
If there's no settlement, and if any LBW readers want to fund the trip, I will gladly head out to Colorado in June to liveblog the trial.
