God, you've been served ...
Religion News Service reports that a Nebraska legislator’s lawsuit against God has been dismissed … because the Lord can not be served notice of the litigation.
“Given that this court finds that there can never be service effectuated on the named defendant, this action will be dismissed with prejudice,” wrote Douglas County District Court Judge Marlon Polk of Omaha, Neb., on Oct. 14.
RNS reports that the ruling was in response to a 2007 lawsuit filed by Nebraska State Sen. Ernie Chambers who sought a permanent injunction against God. According to the Associated Press, Chambers accused God of causing “widespread death, destruction and terrorization of millions upon millions of the Earth’s inhabitants.”
RNS said Chambers has said he filed the suit to demonstrate that everyone — rich or poor — should have access to the court system.
Don’t know yet if Chambers is going to appeal the judge’s recent ruling.
He did, according to the Associated Press, take issue with the judge’s assertion that God can’t be served: “Since God knows everything, God has notice of this lawsuit” Chambers said.
