Cimino

THE MAIL

To the Editors of the Crimson:

This note is in regard to your recent article about Margaret Cimino's lawsuit against New Haven. I think it is absolutely ridiculous for her to use them at all. She, or the lawyers, are trying to milk New Haven for negligence when she chose to go out on the field in the first place. Is it the responsibility of the police to protect aggressive behavior? I think it was negligence on her part for joining such a senseless group of students in the first place. I don't care how big a tradition tearing down goalposts is. It was a very unfortunate accident, but I don't think New Haven or Yale can be blamed for lack of protection. This lawsuit is a further example of the legal bureaucracy that the lawyers thrive on in order to keep them in practice. Yes, perhaps Yale should help for some of the medical costs, but they are not to blame. Again, it was an unfortunate accident and I wish Miss Cimino goodwill in recovery. But money is hardly any way to getting better. Coco Trumbull '85
