Given that Germany has a law granting kidnap victims the right to state compensation, it was only a matter of time before a creative attorney sought to apply that law to the many Germans each year who are abducted by aliens. Jens Lorek, a lawyer in Dresden, told Reuters News this week that he hoped to expand his client base by moving into alien-abduction-compensation law, which does not say a whole lot for his current client base.
Lorek admitted that he had not successfully litigated any such claims yet, but insisted that there are plenty of people out there who need the help, as scores of alien abductions are reported each year. "There's quite obviously demand for legal advice here," he said. "The trouble is, people are afraid of making fools of themselves in court." And thank God that at least some attorneys are not. Asked whether he was worried that he would look ridiculous himself, Lorek did not appear to understand why that might be the case. "Nobody has laughed about it up until now," he said.
