Saudi Family Takes Its Genie Nemesis to Court

Posted in Random Musings by laborlawguy on July 21, 2009

A family living near the holy city of Medina in Saudi Arabia has filed suit in Shariah court against a genie it alleges has been harassing them.

Typical genie harassment involves threatening voicemails, stealing their cell phones, and throwing rocks at them at night when they leave the house.

The court is investigating while a local charity has relocated the family to a different house.

Genies are also called jinn in the Islamic faith and are a theme within the Koran itself.

Read about it here.

Meanwhile, the court is set to impose the granting of three wishes to the family. It’s not clear if the granting genie will be portrayed by Robin Williams or Barbara Eden.
