Thursday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

Bagel-sliced 1) Question: All I ordered was a bagel. Why am I being charged sales tax?

Answer: Did you want it sliced? If so, your bagel transforms into "prepared food" subject to an 8.875% tax. (NY Post, NY's cut of bagel 'dough:' Extra tax for slicing)

2) Question: I'm a judge hearing a felony drug case. Does it matter if two jurors just walked over and patted a testifying police officer on the back and said "good job?"

Answer: It matters. (Underdog, A trial judge must not ignore jurors patting testifying cops on the back midtrial)

3) Question: This clumsy lawyer I work with just fell back onto me on the dance floor, making me bonk my head. May I have $6 million?

Answer: You may.  (Turley, Lawyer Gets $6 Million After Colleague Falls On Her On Dance Floor)
