 Overlawyered: Restraining David Letterman
Colleen Nestler, a resident of Santa Fe, N.M., alleges that late night TV host David Letterman has communicated with her in coded words in his broadcasts, has tormented her and driven her into bankruptcy, and has promised to marry her.
Nestler’s application was accompanied by a typed, six-page, double-spaced letter in which she said Letterman used code words, gestures and “eye expressions” to convey his desire to marry her and train her as his co-host.
This is indeed rather silly, but, considering that David Letterman is never within 3 yards of her anyway, does not think of her anyway (or at least, didn't before this...), and does not mentally harass or hammer her, I'd say, basically, no harm, no foul.
