BREAKING via Twitter: Nesson threatened with sanctions for Oppenheim deposition stunt

Via Harvard Law Professor Charles Nesson's Twitter account comes word that the plaintiffs' attorneys in Sony v. Tenenbaum have sent him a letter (or is it a "letter"?) threatening him with sanctions for his actions in noticing the deposition of recording industry attorney Matthew Oppenheim:

I won't comment on the merits of the sanctions threat until I see the letter (which I'll try to obtain (UPDATE: done), but my previous characterization of Tenenbaum's legal team's actions with regard to this deposition as "low-life litigating" and an "underhanded tactic" stand.
