God Must Have a Good Attorney

A Nebraska state senator filed a lawsuit against God last week. No, serious. He did. He was attempting to make a point to other legislators who want to limit frivolous lawsuits, stating that "anyone can sue anyone they choose, even God."

It seemed ingenious...but it now looks like God has a good attorney running around in Nebraska. According to an article from the Christian Post, "A one-page document marked "Special Appearance" mysteriously appeared at the Douglas County Courthouse in Omaha...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...a longtime defense attorney, said, “It looks to me like a legitimate document that would have to be sustained by the judge," also noting that “God” has a good strategy."

The anonymous author of the document has a point. It is kind of hard to serve a summons on the Big Guy. (Has anyone seen Michael of Gabriel in Omaha lately?).
