Responses to threatened litigation, 1974 Cleveland Browns edition



In 1974, an attorney wrote to the Cleveland Browns threatening personal-injury litigation if fans were injured by the practice of fans throwing paper airplanes that might cause "serious eye injury and perhaps an ear injury." If more judges and lawyers took the attitude of the response of the Browns' general counsel, we'd be in a much happier society today. (via Deadspin)
