Lack of paper brings Ohio court to a halt


Mount Gilead is a small town in Ohio, but judging from the recent turn of events, you'd almost expect it to be located in Scranton, Pennsylvania, wishing for a golden ticket from Dunder Mifflin, a paper and office supply company. You see, the local court has run out of paper.

Yes, paper. And it won't be taking any new cases until it can secure more. Which, since the court also has no remaining money and has switched to a 4 day workweek, could be a while.

While the court has enough paper to finish up the current cases, it is refusing to proceed with any further legal filings unless the involved parties bring their own paper, something several agencies have already offered to do.
