State Sen. Ernie Chambers is suing God. He said on Monday that it is to prove a point about frivolous lawsuits.Hat tip to Pandagon for the story, and commenter Kaethe for bring the facts to light before things got much worse.
Chambers said senators periodically have offered bills prohibiting the filing of certain types of suits. He said his main objection is that the constitution requires that the doors to the courthouse be open to all.
"Thus anybody can file a lawsuit against anybody -- even God," Chambers said.
Chambers said he decided to file the lawsuit after a suit was filed in early September in federal court against Lancaster County Judge Jeffre Cheuvront. He's the judge who was hearing a sexual assault case in which the plaintiff wants to use the words rape and victim during her testimony.
