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 have had the good fortune to receive a Chipotle gift card. I have many questions! Can I eat the card itself? Can I use this gift card other places, such as the Home Depot or at my doctor's office?

Answer: Chipotle has answered all of your excellent questions and many more in the fine print on the back of the card (below). To answer your immediate questions, you should "refrain from eating the card" and if you try to use the card elsewhere "it won't be accepted and they will probably laugh at you." (Consumerist, This Chipotle Gift Card Is Kinda Chuckle-Worthy)


2) Question: I was just on a date where we went horseback riding. I fell off my horse and injured myself. The man who took me on the date "was negligent in failing to properly warn me and appreciate my limited level of skill as a rider, and in failing to pay proper attention to my request that the horses proceed at a slow pace in a careful manner," right?

Answer: Nope! According to the New York Appellate Division, your date had no duty to insure that your "horseback riding experience was safe." (Lowering the Bar, It's Safe Again to Take Your Date Horseback Riding in New York)

3) Question: I'm starting to re-think this whole "online commerce" concept. Everytime I order something online -- DVDs or books from Amazon, lingerie from Victoria Secret for my wife, whatever -- I get billed but it never comes! Where does it go?!?! --Roscoe in Littleton, CO

Answer: Littleton? It is quite possible that your postman may have taken your packages, along with 11,000 others over the last two years.(, Postal worker gets prison time for stealing 11,000 packages) (via Legal Juice)
