When Jesse Dimmick
  was a fugitive from Colorado fleeing a murder charge, he led police in
  Kansas on a chase, and his car was disabled in front of a newlywed
  couple's house. He ran in and confronted the couple, Jared and Lindsay
  Rowley, at knifepoint. As police surrounded the house, Dimmick says he
  got a verbal agreement from the couple that they would help him escape
  in exchange for an unspecified cash payment, which he says constituted
  "a legally binding oral contract." But when he fell asleep, the Rowleys
  fled the house and police stormed in, shooting and wounding Dimmick. He
  was convicted of multiple felonies in the case, but after his
  sentencing (10 years, 11 months), Dimmick was extradited to Colorado to
  face the murder charge. In his free time while awaiting trial in that
  case, Dimmick has sued the Rowleys "without the aid of proffessional
  [sic] legal counsel," his claim notes, alleging "breech [sic] of
  contract" and demanding $235,000 in compensation. The Rowleys' attorney
  asked for a dismissal of the suit, but the judge has yet to rule on
  that motion. (RC/Topeka Capital-Journal) ...The law has this backwards.
  Inmates shouldn't be allowed to file such suits without the judge's
