A case against God?

The BBC News featured an article titled “Legal Case against God dismissed” on October 16, 2008. What do you think, can one sue God? The suit was brought by a Nebraskan senator Ernie Chambers to make a point that “anyone can sue anyone, even God”, as reported by the BBC news. The US judge Marlon Polk, of 4th Judicial District Court of Nebraska, dismissed the case on the grounds that the defendant [God] does not have an address; therefore legal papers cannot be served. Judge Polk wrote in his ruling:

Given that this court finds that there can never be service effectuated on the named defendant this action will be dismissed with prejudice.
