Tuesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I charged up my electric scooter at work. Now my boss wants to fire me for "stealing" 2 cents worth of electricity. Can he do that?

Answer: In Germany, at least, the theft of 2 cents worth of electricity is not grounds for firing someone. (Reuters, Firm can't fire man for 1.8 cent theft) (via Consumerist)

2) Question: We're having a meeting with an important client tomorrow. Should I dress "business sexual?"

Answer: This is a new one on me but as I understand it, business sexual is "clothing that infuses some extra sexuality -- often in an attempt to yield a business advantage -- that is not normal in business clothing but that would not normally be seen as unduly immodest or forward in social clothing." As to the proper times to wear business sexual, I refer you to Fashion Blog Watch. (The Volokh Conspiracy, "Business Sexual")


3) Question: I can never locate a lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender attorney when I need one. Any advice?


Answer: Pick yourself up a copy of the new directory of LGBT partners and LGBT-owned firms. That should help. (Am Law Daily, Foley Sponsors New U.S. Legal Directory for LGBT Lawyers)
