As readers of this blog know, I often write about how lawsuit financing from Lawsuit Financial would assist personal injury plaintiffs in pursuit of their litigation. It is my strong opinion that law suit funding is a vital strategic tool in an attorney’s fight for justice in the courtroom and in the conference room. A desperate, hungry, plaintiff will not help to facilitate the best possible litigation result.
Once in a great while, though, I talk about something else, and this is one of those times. Today, as I was perusing news with a ‘legal slant’, I came upon an article in the SW Iowa News. Apparently, a longtime Nebraska State Senator by the name of Ernie Chambers (an atheist), filed a motion in Douglas County (Nebraska) District Court asking the judge to take judicial notice of God .
Readers of this blog might think I have taken leave of my senses in reporting this here. After all, I have been a strong supporter of the average citizen’s right to pursue justice in court. I have supported the rights of the “little guy” and I have indicated that legal funding assists all of you “Davids” in beating the “Goliath” insurance companies. Although the case smacks of being frivolous, it is the point Chambers is trying to make that caught my attention and should be of interest to anyone who supports pro-justice causes. Chambers’ purpose was to call attention to the question of whether certain lawsuits should be prohibited. He is mocking and attacking the essence of what has become known as “tort reform”. Apparently, he decided to proceed with this unusual motion after the Nebraska legislature tried (more than once) to pass limits on what they call “frivolous lawsuits”.
“Nobody should stand at the courthouse door to predetermine who has access to the courts,” he said. “My point is that anyone can sue anyone else, even God,” said Chambers, in explaining his cause of action. “If I had just stood here and said, ‘The courts should be open to everybody,’ then you would all have yawned. This lawsuit grabbed attention”.
I couldn’t have said it better myself. Let me repeat my favorite quote in the article: “Nobody should stand at the courthouse door to predetermine who has access to the courts”. Amen, brother; may God be with you!
