Move over, Larry Klayman and Orly Taitz. Chris Sevier, who apparently lives in Nashville but claims to go to the same church as the Duck Dynasty douchebag, has filed a lawsuit against the A&E network, GLAAD and President Obama over the suspension of the guy for bigoted comments.
This time around, Sevier put together a 91-paged complaint, quoting scriptures about the sins of homosexuality, saying “We live in a Christian nation ‘Jack.'” So how does this tie in to A&E and “Duck Dynasty”? Well, Sevier is claiming that A&E’s indefinite suspension of Phil Robertson is going to have a chilling effect on other churchgoers — himself included — when it comes to preaching what he believes is the word of God, reports TMZ.
Sevier also named President Obama in the suit, claiming Obama is in cahoots with A&E to “further a pro-gay agenda,” according to TMZ. The best part about this case is definitely the pictures Sevier included in his complaint. It’s unclear what legal purpose they serve, but they’re pretty dang amusing.
At the end of the day, Sevier’s claims will be tossed as a frivolous lawsuit because he states no cognizable legal claims. In addition, Robertson’s suspension doesn’t really impact him and he hasn’t suffered an actual injury from the suspension. For those reasons, Sevier has no standing to file a lawsuit against A&E.
Alas, when you quote scriptures in lieu of legal precedent, the court will almost certainly toss your lawsuit as frivolous. That’s what happened to one Oklahoma man who used Biblical references instead of statutes to make an argument in favor of polygamy.
This is the same guy who sued Apple, claiming that because his Macbook allowed him to access porn on the internet it turned him into an addict and ruined his marriage. And the same guy who was arrested for stalking a country singer a few months ago.
