There has been much written on former Nebraska Senator Ernie Chambers’ lawsuit against God. It began as a protest of frivolous lawsuits and then became one on its own. A particularly delightful passage:
Defendant directly and proximately has caused, inter alia, fearsome floods, egregious earthquakes, horrendous hurricanes, terrifying tornadoes, pestilent plagues, ferocious famines, devastating droughts, genocidal wars, birth defects and the like.
The case was finally discharged in 2008 when the Nebraska Court of Appeals dismissed the appeal and vacated the order of the district court, holding “a court decides real controversies and determines rights actually controverted, and does not address or dispose of abstract questions or issues that might arise in hypothetical or fictitious situation or setting.”
