IV SEEN IT ALL NOW! Man tries to sue God

Legal case against God thrown out

http://uk.news.yahoo.com/4/20081016/twl-legal-case-against-god-thrown-out-41f21e0.html



A judge has thrown out a case against God - as the Almighty doesn't have an official address and legal papers can't be served.

Nebraska State Senator Ernie Chambers filed the lawsuit last year seeking a permanent injunction against God who he said made terrorist threats against him and his Omaha constituents.

Additionally, he said God inspired fear and caused "widespread death, destruction and terrorisation of millions upon millions of the Earth's inhabitants".

The US politician said his case was over the fact that everyone should have access to the courts regardless of whether they have money or not.

However, Douglas County District Court Judge Marlon Polk ruled that under state law a plaintiff must have access to the defendant for a lawsuit to move forward - and this would be rather tricky under the circumstances.

Judge Polk said: "Given that this court finds that there can never be service effectuated on the named defendant this action will be dismissed with prejudice."

But Senator Chambers, a law school graduate, thinks he's found a hole in the judge's ruling.

He said: "The court itself acknowledges the existence of God. A consequence of that acknowledgement is a recognition of God's omniscience.

"Since God knows everything, God has notice of this lawsuit."

Senator Chambers, who has served a record 38 years in the Nebraska Legislature, has 30 days to decide whether to appeal.

that is one of the problems I have with our legal system. Anyone can bring any type of case to court. Look at the crazy judge who sued a cleaners for 50 million dollars over a pair of lost pants.

Hopefully the good people of Nebraska will give him plenty of time to work on his lawsuit by voting him out of office.  There are many people who have used fear as a weapon (US Dept of Homeland Security comes to mind) that he can seek an injunction against.

I am suing relativity. I am so sick of being constrained by matter and wish to travel at an energetic state at relativistic speeds.

I am Jewish, surely I know the right lawyer, right? (had to, just had to...oh a penny!)

God is so going to have to ask for more money after your legal team is done.

HA! no, I was thinking more like get ACTUAL 'intuitive' people to weed out the liars.  So in other words, psychics.  The real ones though.  Only problem being with the real ones is that they're too afraid to express their abilities because they think they're abnormal and that they'll be placed in a lab.
