    I actually think he has a pretty good point.

    If he is trying to point out frivilous law suits, I would think this should do the job.

    God has now filed a countersuit for misuse of creative design. He's willing to drop his suit if the Senator is willing to return the misused materials, namely his body.

    I believe that there is sufficient merit to his allegations to require that it be tried. Assuming he followed Nebraska law, there is probably no problem with jurisdiction and venue. It could be said that God's alleged threats have been made in Nebraska since God, according to the plaintiff, is everywhere and the threats apply to those in Nebraska as well as those in other areas. The main problem I see is in getting God served with a summons assuming that the senator will need personal service. Assuming that God can't be served personally, can he be served through a registered agent? If so, who would be the registered agent? The Pope? Billy Graham? How about one of the "plant seed money (to us, of course), get financial blessings" preachers on Daystar Network?

    Does God have to have a public defender?

    Imagine that conversation:

    Fresh-faced, bright-eyed young lawyer, (think Hearsay 40 years ago ), in the public defenders office. Here is your first case and he eagerly asks, whom am I defending? The answer:
    GOD

    Would love to see the look on the Senator's face (or everyone's for that matter) if God showed up at his preliminary hearing...

    For some reason, I can't get the face of George Burns out of my mind.

    I'm not 100% positive, but I think 40 years ago was pre-Hearsay.

    So, now would his lawyer actually be the Devil's advocate we have been hearing about for years?

    God was going to file a counter suit, but he couldn't find any lawyers...
