Remember the nutcase who sued Apple in 2013 because his computer didn’t block him from accessing the porn which ruined his marriage? And then in 2014 when he attempted to intervene in one of Florida’s same-sex marriage cases so that he could marry that porn-filled laptop? And then in April of this year when he tried the same thing in Texas? And then last month when he sued the governor of Kentucky and Kim Davis for the same reason, earning the wrath of the Liberty Counsel? That nutcase is trying yet again in Utah.
Ben Winslow reports for Salt Lake City’s Fox affiliate:
The state of Utah is asking a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit filed by a man who is seeking the right to marry his computer.
In an apparent protest over same-sex marriage, Chris Sevier filed a lawsuit against the Utah County Clerk, Governor Gary Herbert and Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes for not granting him a license to marry his laptop. News reports show Sevier, a disbarred attorney, has tried similar lawsuits in other states. (Sevier also tried to intervene in Utah’s defense of a lawsuit filed over same-sex marriage here.)
In response to the lawsuit on Friday, the state of Utah asked the judge to dismiss the lawsuit outright. The Utah Attorney General’s Office gave a long list of reasons why the lawsuit lacks any merit — including that computers cannot consent to marriage.
Ironically, the state of Utah, which fought same-sex marriage for years in the courts, found itself in the position of defending it in the filing.
