Tuesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blawgosphere.

1) Question: Please settle this quickly-escalating dispute between me and my fiancée. She calls it a "sleazy lap dance at a strip club." I call it "humanitarian aid." Who is right?

Answer: Did the event in question occur at "Marilyn's on Monroe" in Toledo, Ohio? Then it could well have been part of "Lap Dances for Haiti," and you are correct. If it was anywhere else in the world, she's probably right. (CBS News, "Lap Dances for Haiti" Raises $1K in Ohio)

2) Question: The police pulled me over because they thought my car was stolen (it wasn't). An officer made me exit the vehicle while he pointed his gun at me. Does this mean I cannot finish drinking my beer?

Answer: Correct. Put the beer down. (FAIL Blog, Sober Fail: Pardon Me, Officer, While I Finish My Beer)


3) Question: Just as the opening bars of Frank Sinatra's "My Way" started to play and I was preparing to rock the house with some fine karaoke, the club owner tackled me and turned off the music. What the...?! Do I have a case against him?

Answer: Thank him, don't sue him. He may have just saved you from a fatal assault. (The New York Times, Sinatra Song Often Strikes Deadly Chord)
