First the set up. Via Deadspin we get a typically ridiculous “nastygram” (aka cease and desist letter) from 1974, written to the Cleveland Stadium Corporation, from way back in 1974. They are asserting that fans throwing paper airplanes can cause injury and inform them that if any occur, they will sue (so setting them up for suit, basically):
And then the response from their corporate counsel (and trust me do not drink fluids as you read this):
As a lawyer who constantly gets and occasionally sends nastygrams, I wonder if that actually worked.
