Homophobe sues for right to marry his laptop because he wants ‘the same rights’ as gays
An anti-gay troll is suing Alabama for the right to marry his laptop.
Legal troll Chris Sevier, a serial author of nuisance lawsuits, filed a new claim this week against the government of Alabama.
Sevier, is suing the state for the right to tie the knot to his Macbook computer, claiming his right to tie the knot to his computer is the same as any gay couple’s right to marry.
Sevier, who has filed action on similar grounds in Texas, Kentucky and Utah, claims that because same-sex marriage is legal in Alabama it must also allow him to tie the knot with his computer.
His lawsuit contends that the defendants “[issue] marriage licenses to individuals who self-identify as homosexual, but he refuses to issue marriage licenses to zoophiles, machinists, and polygamists license on a basis that can only be described as procedurally arbitrary”.
His case is joined by three other plaintiffs trying to enter a three-way marriage.
They claim that gays are given “special treatment” in the state because their unions are recognised, unlike those to inanimate objects.
Named in the lawsuit are Alabama’s Governor Kay Ivey, Attorney General Steve Marshall and Blount County Probate Judge Chris Green.
The state of Alabama is yet to respond to his lawsuit.
In Utah, the state fought back against his claims because his laptop is not old enough to marry.
