A man has filed a motion in court because he was denied the right to marry his computer, and amazingly enough, this isn’t the most bizarre lawsuit he’s ever filed.
Chris Sevier’s latest suit doesn’t really come down to the fact that he is in love with his MacBook, but it’s actually more of a statement against same-sex marriage.
“They discriminated against me when they rejected my request to marry my computer,” wrote Sevier in the motion. “I approached the Utah clerk to have a marriage license issued for me and my machine-spouse. The clerk denied my request for a marriage license … my object of affection was outside the scope of the narrow definition. If anything, my marriage to a machine possesses less of a risk, since a possible acrimonious divorce proceeding could be avoided, if the marriage fails.”
Last year, Sevier gained some notoriety after filing a lawsuit against A&E for suspending Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson after he made public homophobic comments. He was also arrested for stalking country music star John Rich.
Sevier is also known as the man who filed a lawsuit against Apple for failing to protect his computer for pornography, which ultimately led to his porn addiction. In that lawsuit, Sevier claimed that while trying to access Facebook.com, he mistakenly was led to the adult site F**kbook.com, and that “appealed to his biological sensibilities as a male and led to an unwanted addiction with adverse consequences.”
It’s difficult to see what Sevier is gaining from his repeated bizarre legal battles, but if notoriety is what he wants, he’s certainly getting plenty of it.
