Court Case Against God Tossed Out For Lack of Address

Ernie Chambers, A Nebraskan State Senator has been issued a setback in his lawsuit against God. That's right. God. He says the Lord Almighty has made threats against him and his electorate in Omaha and is responsible for "widespread death, destruction and terrorization of millions upon millions of the Earth's inhabitants." His setback however, hasn't come in the form of a lightning bolt or a plague of frogs but rather from the court itself. It turns out that the judge has thrown out the suit because no home address could be furnished.

The lawsuit, Senator Chambers says, was filed to make the point that all persons should be able to have access to the courts regardless of wealth. Regardless of the reason, Douglas County District Court Judge Marlon Polk was steadfast: "Given that this court finds that there can never be service effectuated on the named defendant this action will be dismissed with prejudice." Not being dismayed by the law . . . or reason (?) Chambers believes he has a hole in this ruling: "The court itself acknowledges the existence of God. A consequence of that acknowledgment is a recognition of God's omniscience. Since God knows everything, God has notice of this lawsuit."

Even if you could sue God, how you are going to make Him pay up if you win?

Who would Gods Lawyer be? I am thinking Cochran, he can use the chewbacca defense. Ladies and gentlemen, this is Chewbacca. Chewbacca is a Wookiee from the planet Kashyyyk. But Chewbacca lives on the planet Endor. Now think about it; that does not make sense!Why would a Wookiee, an eight-foot tall Wookiee, want to live on Endor, with a bunch of two-foot tall Ewoks? That does not make sense! But more important, you have to ask yourself; What does this have to do with this case? Nothing. Ladies and gentlemen, it has nothing to do with this case! It does not make sense! Look at me. I'm a lawyer defending a major record company, and I'm talkin' about Chewbacca! Does that make sense? Ladies and gentlemen, I am not making any sense! None of this makes sense! And so you have to remember, when you're in that jury room deliberatin' and conjugatin' the Emancipation Proclamation, [approaches and softens] does it make sense? No! Ladies and gentlemen of this supposed jury, it does not make sense! If Chewbacca lives on Endor, you must acquit! The defense rests

"The lawsuit, Senator Chambers says, was filed to make the point that all persons should be able to have access to the courts regardless of wealth." Dude, no one is going to have access to the courts if we let them be flooded with idiotic suits!

Is this senator also a lawyer? Because if he is he could be and should be sanctioned for filing a frivolous suit. Believe it or not lawyers are supposed to be able to tell the difference.

I guess there isn't anything better to do in Omaha. Can we please all go back to governing the land instead of blaming people for the situation we are in?

im confused... maybe i havent had enough coffee... but... what?! so the senator is saying that because "god" is recognized by the court as existing, he knows about the lawsuit? yawn.

I'd heard about this story, but I had no idea the man was a senator. That's insane. How dare an elected official waste the court's time like that?
