YES! Them there's fighting words.
First let me THANK every reader, blogger, and concerned freedom lover who wrote me offering help and guidance in dealing with litigation jihadists. Kind of scary how many lawyers are hanging out here. I love that! Your regard and affection has stunned me. Floored.
An enormous thanks to John Hawkins of Right Wing News for hooking me up with Coleman. Hawkins is a rare and wonderful friend. A decent, good man.
Here is our response to the litigation jihad. Bring it on!

Re: Feinberg v. Geller
Dear Mr. DeLonge:
We represent Pamela Geller and write in response to yours of February 25, 2008.
Your client’s threats are utterly meritless. His reputation is by all indications quite immune to degradation. Furthermore, the suggestion that unnamed persons could be provoked to harm him is ludicrous, utterly unsupportable by the applicable legal standard, and appears to be an artifact of a fantastically exaggerated sense of importance—or an attempt to manufacture a legal claim out of whole cloth.
Any lawsuit filed on the basis of the preposterous charges in your letter would be patently frivolous. If your client attempts to test the judiciary’s commitment to free speech Ms. Geller will not only defend herself vigorously, but will relentlessly seek all available sanctions and attorneys’ fees arising from such litigation provided by law.
You client may also rest assured that Ms. Geller’s blog posts will remain online. Indefinitely.
Very truly yours,
Ronald D. Coleman
