God Cleared On Technicality

The Nebraska state senator who sought to sue God for 'widespread death, destruction and terrorisation of millions upon millions of the Earth's inhabitants' has had his case thrown out of court because the defendant has no address so legal papers cannot be served.
The Judge said in his ruling that a plaintiff must have access to the defendant for a case to proceed.
"Given that this court finds that there can never be service effectuated on the named defendant this action will be dismissed,' he said although the Senator argued that God was supposedly everywhere and knew everything so he'd be aware anyway.
I'd say it was just as well because there was a very real possibility that God would lose the case.
Hurricanes, tsunamis and any other natural disaster that you care to name are actually called acts of God, how much more guilty could he be?
If God has gone into hiding and isn't going to step forward to defend his name, how about suing the Pope who is meant to be God's representative here on Earth. We know where he lives. Just look for the old German guy in the funny hat tearing out the condom adverts in the magazines.

Lucy,

this is very interesting... in america when you file a lawsuit you must include a "prayer" in the filing... in the "prayer" you "pray that the judge hears" your case... perhaps the judge thought he was being sued by the senator... which explains why the judge threw out the case...

From what i understand, the Senator was making a semi-serious statement about the frivolous cases being bought before the Nebraska courts.
This did make me smile though.
