Failed to Free Him of Flatulence

In April, Romanian lawyer Madalin Ciculescu, 34, said the next stop for his lawsuit is the European Court of Human Rights after two Romanian courts turned down his claims against Orthodox bishops who failed to exorcize demons causing his flatulence. He sued the archdiocese because at least two exorcisms (one at work, one at home) were useless and harmed his business and made his home life unpleasant. An archdiocese spokesman said the exorcisms were done properly, by the book.
