A Florida judge has tossed out a strange motion from a man who claimed he wanted to marry his "porn-filled computer."

Chris Sevier was attempting to intervene in a same-sex marriage case "on behalf of other minority sexual orientation groups," the Broward-Palm Beach New Times reported.

If gay people "have the right to marry their object of sexual desire, even if they lack corresponding sexual parts," he argued, "then I should have the right to marry my preferred sexual object."

According to the motion, Sevier claims he became addicted to pornography after buying his Apple computer and "fell in love" with the machine.

He even claims he "preferred having sex with it over all other persons or things."

Judge Robert Hinkle threw out the motion late last month, according to the New Times, saying it has "no place in this lawsuit."

Sevier was banned from practicing law in Tennessee in 2011 due to "mental infirmity or illness," according to Gawker.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
