Lawyer Files Motion to Marry His Laptop

A Tennessee lawyer living in Florida has filed a motion to marry his laptop. The ABA Journal reports that Chris Sevier intervened in a high-profile case involving recognition of same-sex marriages performed elsewhere. Sevier argued that if same-sex couples have the right to marry, Sevier should be permitted to wed his "preferred sexual object," which he describes as a "porn-filled Apple computer," the Broward-Palm Beach New Times reports. Last year, Sevier made headlines when he filed a product liability suit contenting that Apple Inc. was responsible for the pornography addiction that he says resulted when he mistyped a Web address into a MacBook Pro laptop. He made further headlines when he was arrested for allegedly stalking country singer John Rich and a 17-year-old-girl.
