Friday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I was on a flight from the U.S. to Australia when a three-year-old boy next to me let loose a deafening scream that would make your ears bleed. No, for real--blood erupted from my ears and now I'm deaf. Do I have a case against the airline?

Answer: You might argue that the airline was negligent because the crew failed "to take all the necessary precautions to prevent the accident that resulted in your injury." That might lead to a settlement. (News.com.au, Screaming child lands Qantas in court after sending woman deaf)

2) Question: Why does my luggage get searched every time I fly? I don't have time for this!

Answer: Travel tip: Remove the "Drug Runner" sticker from your bag before you get to the airport. TSA hates those. (Consumerist, Buy These Suitcase Stickers If You Want To Get Frisked)

3) Question: I'm going to walk and text message people at the same time, so all of you complainers out there can just get used to it. I am willing to take reasonable safety precautions to prevent myself from falling in a manhole or crashing into others, however, if there are any out there. Any ideas?

Answer: You are in luck! Your iPhone can now help protect you by using its built-in cameras to project an image of what's in front of you and set it as the background while you're texting. Carry on. (Tosh.0 blog, Text While You Walk with Road SMS)
