Have You Been Abducted by Aliens...

and want compensation for it? Well you probably won't get it here in the US. However, according to an article from Reuters, a German lawyer based in the eastern city of Dresden hopes to get more business and expand his client list by pursuing state compensation claims for people who believe they were abducted by aliens.

"There's quite obviously demand for legal advice here," Jens Lorek, who specializes in social and labor law, said. "The trouble is, people are afraid of making fools of themselves in court."

He hasn't won any abduction claims yet, but says there are plenty of potential clients, noting that extra-terrestrial watchdogs report scores of alien assaults every year. Lorek, 41, is pinning his hopes for success on a German law which grants kidnap victims the right to state compensation.

Lorek isn't too worried about being ridiculed for representing clients haunted by aliens. According to him, "Nobody has laughed about it up until now." If that happened here, he probably would have been laughed right out of the courtroom. I guess it's good he is doing this in Germany and not the US.
