You’ve Got to Serve Somebody, But Make Sure It’s Not God

Posted by Andrew J. Barovick | Oct 16, 2008 | 0 Comments

In a case of apparent first impression, a Nebraska court has ruled that proper service can never be effectuated upon God.  An AP wire story in today's NY Times reported that the longest serving state senator in Nebraska history, Ernie Chambers, had sought a “permanent injunction” against God due to God's terrorisitc threats against Chambers, and the widespread death and destruction God had brought upon millions of the Earth's inhabitants.  

The Douglas County District Court tossed Chambers' lawsuit, stating that because “there can never be service effectuated on the named defendant, this action will be dismissed with prejudice.”

Chambers claimed that he filed the suit to show that everyone should have access to the courts.

Down here on the planet known as Earth, we are hopeful that Chambers has access to all the medication he needs.
