Romanian inmate sues God

According to this article, a Romanian prisoner is suing God because he didn't feel that he was kept safe from the devil by God. Among his statement:
"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...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 the Devil's hands."

Ironic that a convicted murderer would charge God with crimes that appear to be more as a result of his own behavior rather than God's. As would be expected, his case will likely go nowhere, since God can't be subpoenaed in court.
