Suspended lawyer’s application to marry porn-filled MacBook overturned

A suspended US lawyer has had his bid to marry his porn-filled laptop overturned by a judge.

Chris Sevier, who has been suspended from practising law on disability/mental health grounds, claimed he fell in love with his Apple MacBook and “preferred having sex with it over all other persons or things”.

“Over time, I began preferring sex with my computer over sex with real women,” Mr Sevier explained in a court filing. “Naturally, I ‘fell in love’ with my computer and preferred having sex with it over all other persons or things, as a result of classic conditioning upon orgasm.”

Mr Savier claims if gay couples “have the right to marry their object of sexual desire, even if they lack corresponding sexual parts, then I should have the right to marry my preferred sexual object.”

Jude Robert Hale overturned Mr Savier’s motion, suggesting the movement was “satirical”. “Or perhaps it is only removed from reality,” he added. “Either way, the motion has no place in this lawsuit.”

Last year Mr Sevier attempted to sue Apple after the mistyping of ‘Facebook’ led him to pornographic images while using the Safari browser.

He said the images “poisoned his life”, with his escalating addiction leading to the breakdown of his marriage and causing him “to experience emotional distress to the point of hospitalisation.”
