Wednesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I'm gearing up for law school but first I need to ace the LSAT. Any suggestions for a prep course? Actually, I need more than that. How about a full-blown LSAT prep camp?

Answer: No problem. Kaplan will let you immerse yourself in "the most concentrated LSAT prep experience ever" -- 300 hours of nothing but LSAT prep with an all-star faculty and in-depth personal attention, all for $11,499 (with housing!) (The Legal Satyricon, LSAT improvement: $8-11.5k)

2) Question:  We're a collection agency, but nobody ever pays up. We need a better script for when we leave answering machine messages. How about "You're a loser. Why don't you just jump in front of a train?" "You a f***ing thief, you know. "I'm gonna find you and you gonna be walking like a b***h on the side of the street." "I'm the guy who's gonna end your life. That's who I am."

Answer: Bad idea, and counter-productive. It could cost you $1.5 million. (The Consumerist, Guess Who Said It?

3) Question: I just got pulled over for speeding, but the Florida police officer let me pay the convenient Roadside Fee of $191 in order to avoid any points on my license. Thanks, officer! Why don't other states have this service?

Answer: I guess this was a "win-win" for you and the officer but, for future reference, please be advised that Florida does not have a Roadside Fee plan.  (Turley, Florida Police Officer Arrested After Allegedly Offering “Roadside Fees” for Drivers to Avoid Points on Licenses)
