      Ernie Chambers Files Suit Against God

      Ernie Chambers

      Nebraska State Senator Ernie Chambers has a new target these days: God.

      Chambers filed a lawsuit in Douglas County Court Friday afternoon. However, Chambers isn't suing God because he has any kind of beef with the deity. He says the suit is to fight possible laws restricting the filing of frivolous lawsuits.

      Chambers' suit asks for a "permanent injunction ordering Defendant to cease certain harmful activities and the making of terroristic threats."

      The lawsuit identifies the plaintiff as, "the duly elected and serving State Senator from the 11th Legislative District in Omaha, Nebraska."

      Chambers tells KPTM FOX 42 News that his lawsuit is in response to bills brought forth by other state senators to try and stop lawsuits from being filed. "The Constitution requires that the courthouse doors be open, so you cannot prohibit the filing of suits," Chambers says. "Anyone can sue anyone they choose, even God."

      Chambers also cites that the, "defendant directly and proximately has caused, inter alia, fearsome floods, egregious earthquakes, horrendous hurricanes, terrifying tornados, pestilential plagues..."

      Chambers bases his ability to sue God, as, "that defendant, being omnipresent, is personally present in Douglas County."
