Lawsuit against God denied

I don’t know if the judge in question had a sense of humour or if he was playing it straight, but a lawsuit against God by a Nebraska Senator was thrown out because of lack of evidence that the defendant had ever been served. Apparently God’s address is unknown.

Judge Marlon Polk threw out Nebraska Sen. Ernie Chambers’ lawsuit against the Almighty, saying there was no evidence that the defendant had been served. What’s more, Polk found “there can never be service effectuated on the named defendant.”

Chambers had sued God in September 2007, seeking a permanent injunction to prevent God from committing acts of violence such as earthquakes and tornadoes.

The senator said today that he is considering an appeal of Polk’s ruling.

“It is a thoughtful, well-written opinion,” Chambers said. “However, like any prudent litigator, I want to study it in detail before I determine what my next course of action will be.”

Polk dismissed the lawsuit with prejudice, which means it can’t be refiled. But his ruling can be appealed.

Funny, but also a bit weird and a total waste of the court’s time.
