A letter to RIAA

As a remedy for being sued wrongly or overzealously, malicious prosecution actions are traditionally extremely hard to win. However, should a court happen to allow a counterclaim for emotional distress, watch out — we’ve got a “thin skull plaintiff”. (Recording Industry Versus the People, Mar. 27).

  • What a terrible day today was. Storms, blocked roads, and blocked detours from blocked roads, and then mass murders.

    That letter is a beautiful object, that should be studied in Legal Writing and Analysis classes, in our law schools. It retrieved the day a little, as only a work of art could.

  • I generally view legal correspondence as so much sound and fury. But this letter made me nervous. Nice find!
