Should football fans be able to swear at sporting events?
A football fan is suing the city of San Diego for the right to yell profanities at sporting events. Eric Holguin was ejected from a Chargers game after a verbal altercation with rival fans and claims that the NFL’s prohibition on fan cursing is blatantly unconstitutional. “A fan has a right to say ‘F--- you,’” says Holguin’s attorney. “It’s a public place.”
Student to sue fraternity over a stunt
A West Virginia college student is suing his fraternity, alleging that he fell off a deck when a drunken frat brother fired a bottle rocket out of his own anus. Louis Helmburg III alleges that Travis Hughes’s bottle-rocket stunt so startled him that he jumped back and fell. “Firing bottle rockets out of one’s anus,” the lawsuit states, “constitutes an ‘ultrahazardous’ activity.”
