Sounds funny??? Well, this US senator actually filed a case in court sueing God!!! Wow! How is that? Filing a case against the almighty in a system formed by us mere mortals!
PS: I don’t know what amuses me most – That he filed such a case? or that A SENATOR representing the people filed such a case? or that he is STILL A SENATOR after this whole drama? !!!!!
A US judge has thrown out a case against God, ruling that because the defendant has no address, legal papers cannot be served.
The suit was launched by Nebraska state senator Ernie Chambers, who said he might appeal against the ruling.
He sought a permanent injunction to prevent the “death, destruction and terrorisation” caused by God.
Judge Marlon Polk 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 with prejudice,” Judge Polk wrote in his ruling.
Mr Chambers cannot refile the suit but may appeal.
‘God knows everything’
Mr Chambers sued God last year. He said God had threatened him and the people of Nebraska and had inflicted “widespread death, destruction and terrorisation of millions upon millions of the Earth’s inhabitants”.
He said he would carefully consider Judge Polk’s ruling before deciding whether to appeal.
The court, Mr Chambers said, had acknowledged the existence of God and “a consequence of that acknowledgement is a recognition of God’s omniscience”.
“Since God knows everything,” he reasoned, “God has notice of this lawsuit.”
Mr Chambers, a state senator for 38 years, said he filed the suit to make the point that “anyone can sue anyone else, even God”.

It’s high time somebody did something about this. But still, honestly don’t you think imprisonment for 30 months is a bit too harsh? After all, all he did was send mails. He didn’t rob or hurt anyone. For all we know it’s just a few extra emails in everyone’s inbox. Hmmm……
New York: Beware! Sending a spam is enough for police to take you to jail. A federal court in Manhattan on Tuesday sentenced a Brooklyn man, named Adam Vitale, to 30 months imprisonment for sending spam e-mails to more than 1.2 million subscribers of America Online (AOL), the online division of Time Warner. In this filthy act, Vitale, along with another man Todd Moeller, defeated AOL’s filter system by using several different computer servers to relay the e-mails and changed the e-mail header information to ensure the spam e-mails could not be traced back to them.
Vitale was sentenced after pleading guilty more than a year ago to breaking anti-spam laws. He was also ordered to pay $180,000 to AOL in restitution. Moeller, another defendant in the case, was sentenced last November to 27 months for his role in the scheme.
