God in the Dock -- Literally

Oh, heavens! Thug sues God ... in full ...

A Romanian prisoner serving 20 years for murder has sued God for failing to save him from the Devil. The inmate claims his Baptism was a contract with God to keep him out of trouble.

"God even claimed and received from me various goods and prayers in exchange for forgiveness and the promise that I would be rid of problems and have a better life," he wrote in the suit. "But on the contrary I was left in the Devil's hands."

Court officials said the suit will likely be dropped because they're unable to subpoena God.
