    A Romanian prisoner is suing God for failing to save him from the Devil.

    The inmate, named as Pavel M in media reports, accused God of "cheating, abuse and traffic of influence".

    His complaint reads: "I, the undersigned Pavel M, currently jailed at Timisoara Penitentiary serving a 20 years sentence for murder, request legal action against God, resident in Heaven, and represented here by the Romanian Orthodox Church, for committing the following crimes: cheating, concealment, abuse against people's interest, taking bribe and traffic of influence."

    The inmate argued that his baptism was a contract between him and God who was supposed to keep the Devil away and keep him out of trouble.

    He added: "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.

    "But on the contrary I was left in Devil's hands."

    The complaint was sent to the Timisoara Court of Justice and forwarded to the prosecutor's office.

    But prosecutors said it would probably be dropped and they were unable to subpoena God to court.

    If they subpoena God and he doesn't show, doesn't the prisoner win by default?

    First they have to get His address to notify Him. From what I understand very few people have seen Him or even know what He looks like.
