Spooky, I was just reading about this. Personally I think its fucking insane; the case seems to rely on a "reassuring statement" some scientists made prior to the main earthquake, but I can't find any info about what that statement actually was. In any event it reeks of opportunistic lawyers and arse-covering politicians.

Why didn't they seek advice from the pope? He's God's vicar after all, if anyone would know when an earthquake was due, he would.

They'll be suing God tomorrow for causing it in the first place.
