Looking at the paper this morning I noticed an interesting article that come over the AP. A Judge in Nebraska threw out a lawsuite against God due to lack of address. The suite was filed by State Sen. Ernie Chambers last year seeking a permanent injunction against God for making terroistic threats against the senator and his constituents in Omaha. Also, for inspiring fear and causing "widespread death, destruction and terrorization of millions upon millions of the earth's inhabitants." The senator claims he filed the suite to make a point that anyone poor or rich can file a suite. Last Tuesday Douglas County District Court Judge Marlon Polk ruled that under state law a plaintiff must have access to the defendant for a lawsuite to move forward. And, "given that this court finds that there can never be service effectuated on the named defendant this action will be dismissed with prejudice." Chambers counters that court aknowledges the existence of God "a consequence of that acknowledgment is a recognition of God's omniscience."
Chambers said "therefore, since God knows everything, God has notice of this lawsuite." An appeal has to be filed within 30 days. Now coming from Nebraska and knowing who Chambers is I find this interesting. I don't know whether to laugh or cry. He is trying to make a point in which I have sympathy, but I also know that he is known in Nebraska as somewhat of a trouble maker for the Unicameral. He went to law school but never took the bar exam and he runs a barbershop in north Omaha. I doubt that he will file an appeal, he has made his point.
