Monday'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 a 26-year-old woman at a topless beach in Italy. Why are the police standing by my towel and giving me a hard time about being topless?

Answer: Sometimes police will open an investigation if a furious mother on the beach complains that an “attractive” sunbather is rubbing lotion on her body in a way that “troubled her sons aged 14 and 12.” (, Topless sunbather accused of sensuously rubbing in sun cream)

2) Question: I'm a priest. I just put a great door sticker on my car that reads... wait for it... "God Squad." Hilarious, right?!

Answer: Great stuff, Father, but you need to get that off of your car before the lawyers from Best Buy find you and send you a cease-and-desist letter. (Fond du Lac Reporter, Priest receives cease-and-desist order from Best Buy) (via Bad Lawyer


3) Question: I'm not going to lie, I was driving way too fast -- about 290km/h (180mph), which was about 170km/h over the limit. What is the fine for that in Switzerland?

Answer: One million dollars. (BBC, Swede faces world-record $1m speeding penalty)
