A judge has dismissed a Nebraska legislator’s lawsuit against God, saying the Almighty could 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., in October.
State Senator Ernie Chambers filed suit, seeking a permanent injunction against God, the Associated Press reported. He accused God of causing “widespread death, destruction, and terrorization of millions upon millions of the Earth’s inhabitants.”
The law school graduate who never took the bar exam questioned the judge’s ruling, the AP reported. “Since God knows everything, God has notice of this lawsuit,” Chambers said. (RNS)
