Robert "Joe" Halderman, the slimeball who attempted to extort $2 million from David Letterman and claims that he was really trying to simply sell a revealing script about Letterman's love life is set to learn whether or not his case will be thrown out of court. Both scenarios seem like extortion to me.

Hey Joe, will you give me, say, $50,0000 for a script I wrote which exposes that you're a scumbag imbecile? Oh wait, everybody already knows that.

Halderman is also trying to use the whole Tiger Woods scandal to bolster his case. He says that Woods is reported to have offered one of the women with whom he allegedly had an affair millions of dollars for her silence and that she isn't being prosecuted for extortion. Hey, dufus brain, let me point out the difference: Tiger Woods offered her the money, she didn't demand it.

If convicted, the 52 year-old could spend up to 15 years in prison for grand larceny.
