Wednesday's Three Burning Legal Questions
Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.
1) Question: It's prom night, baby! My date and I are going to sneak a few drinks before the dance, then have the night of our dreams. Yeah, we're underage, but what's the worst that can happen?
Answer: Well ... your date could begin swearing at school administrators and, when the police come, she could grab a chair and swing it at police. Then, after being placed under arrest, she could start smashing her head and face on the back of the chair, causing her own nose to bleed. Then, while being led out of the dance, she might spit blood on one of the arresting officers, and cap it all off by trying to kick out the squad car's windows.

2) Question: Police! 9-1-1 Emergency! Legal Blog Watch! There is a suspicious coin in Market Square!
Answer: Sir, that is a quarter. (FAIL Blog, Suspect Fail)
3) Question: My girlfriend has been hounding me to get married for years. I finally gave in, but I had a plan ... I had a robot perform the ceremony! That can't possibly be binding, right?
Answer: Not so fast, player. You might well be validly married, even if C3PO was your officiant. (Internet Cases, Can a robot perform a valid marriage ceremony?)
