Nebraska State Senator Sues God. God Responds.
State Senator Ernie Chambers of Omaha sued God last September in an effort to stop natural disasters.
The suit asks for a “permanent injunction ordering Defendant to cease certain harmful activities and the making of terroristic threats.”
Chambers says he is doing this to fight laws which would restrict frivolous lawsuits. He says the courts should not stop people from suing anyone, even God. Besides. says Chambers, the defendant has had some horrible offenses:
(He) directly and proximately has caused, inter alia, fearsome floods, egregious earthquakes, horrendous hurricanes, terrifying tornados, pestilential plagues…”
Never one to shrink from a fight the Almighty responded when a one-page document marked “Special Appearance showed up at the Douglas County Courthouse.
“It was on the counter in legal filing yesterday,” Gordon Rieber in the Clerk of the District Court’s office told Omaha’s Action 3 News. “No one saw it come in. She (an employee) turned her back and there it was.”
In the paper, “God” says the suit by Sen. Ernie Chambers (D-Omaha) should be thrown out because there was “[n]o proper and sufficient service of summons” by a deputy.
And although He doesn’t issue “terroristic threats,” as Chambers had claimed in his lawsuit, “God” wrote that the senator would receive an “appropriate punishment.”
Now, the case is in court, awaiting a judge’s final decision.
