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., on Oct. 14.
State Sen. Ernie Chambers filed suit in 2007 to seek 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."
Chambers has said he filed the suit to demonstrate that everyone — rich or poor — should have access to the court system.
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.
Chambers has 30 days to determine if he will appeal.
