Frivolous? ha!

The thing I love about this is on the outside, I, despite my undying atheism, find the basis for the suit rather absurd.
The idea of suing over something like this is a little silly to me because of the fact that I don't really agree with suing over such trivial things. For instance, I would never fathom suing my parents over Santa Claus or suing over the existance of bigfoot.
BUT, the reason I really hope a case like this will be won someday is not because I want to see anyone make money from such an abstruse suit, but that I want to see government admit that there's no historical, scientific, or legal proof of Jesus' existance.
That's where we win.
If it takes a million frivolous lawsuits to get that victory, I'm behind it one hundred percent.

Hmm can anyone verify this: "On March 20th, 2006, the case was re-evaluated [1], and in July of that year Cascioli was fined by an Italian appeals court for bringing a fraudulent suit."

This is from wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luigi_Cascioli

Also, from the same wiki: http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=50890

That article says he was fined in an appeals court in Rome. Unless i'm mistaken, he appealed to an EU Court of human rights.
