Friday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: Sure, I keep a bunch of chickens in my house. But why did the police just roll up to my house in an armored tank holding movie star Steven Seagal and SWAT guys, blow out my windows and arrest me? Why???

Answer: Sometimes authorities break out the tanks and Steven Seagal when they suspect you of cockfighting. It happens.  (, Steven Seagal, Sheriff Raid Valley Home In Tank) (via Popehat)

2) Question:  I'm at the bank. I think this $100 bill they just gave me looks a bit off, but it's hard to know. Should I just check it more closely to see if it is counterfeit when I get home?

Answer: Freeze! Once you walk out that bank's door, they will say any problems with the $100 bill are "on you." Check it out now, not later. (Consumerist, Man Who Says Chase Gave Him Counterfeit Bill Camps Out In Front Of Branch)

3) Question: I'm 103 (!) years old, so I'm starting to slow down a bit -- Do you think it would be OK if I asked to lighten my load at work a bit?

Answer: Is that you, U.S. District Judge Wesley Brown? Either way, you are 103 years old! You do whatever the heck you want to do! (The Associated Press, Federal judge lightens case load at age 103)
