    Suit against God tossed over lack of address

    Judge rules the Almighty wasn't properly served due to unlisted address

    LINCOLN, Neb. - A judge has thrown out a Nebraska legislator's lawsuit against God, saying the Almighty wasn't properly served, because of his unlisted home address. State Sen. Ernie Chambers filed the lawsuit last year seeking a permanent injunction against God.

    He said God has made terroristic threats against the senator and his constituents in Omaha, inspired fear and caused "widespread death, destruction and terrorization of millions upon millions of the Earth's inhabitants."

    Chambers has said he filed the lawsuit to make the point that everyone should have access to the courts regardless of whether they are rich or poor.

    On Tuesday, 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.

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

    Hole in the judge's ruling?

    Chambers, who graduated from law school but never took the bar exam, thinks he's found a hole in the judge's ruling.

    "The court itself acknowledges the existence of God," Chambers said Wednesday. "A consequence of that acknowledgment is a recognition of God's omniscience."

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

    Chambers has 30 days to decide whether to appeal. He said he hasn't decided yet.

    Chambers, who has served a record 38 years in the Nebraska Legislature, is not returning next year because of term limits. He skips morning prayers during the legislative session and often criticizes Christians.

    how ridiculous can a lawsuit get. No wonder it takes years for cases to get heard when things like this are clogging the docket
