â†µUnfortunately for Little League, however, the courts are not big enough to contain such a lawsuit. No friends, this one will be decided in God’s court of law!: â†µâ†µ
â†µâ‡¥"GOD is the ultimate judge and has the final say," [Kapan] wrote in a March 15 letter to Little League's lawyers. â†µâ‡¥
â†µâ‡¥Before filing suit Thursday, the organization's lawyers contacted Kaplan in a March 7 letter demanding that he stop using the Little League tag. The similar names could mislead and confuse the public by suggesting an affiliation between the groups, the lawyers wrote. â†µâ‡¥â†µâ‡¥
â†µâ‡¥Kaplan responded with a four-page letter declaring only God could judge the dispute. â†µâ‡¥â†µâ‡¥
â†µâ‡¥"Christian Little League was GOD's idea and it is a great and wonderful idea," wrote Kaplan, who grew up Jewish and converted to Christianity. "I have no plans on changing the name GOD gave me." â†µâ‡¥â†µ
