The Day's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I can't decide between ordering the Death by Chocolate cake and the flaming Bananas Foster. Any suggestions?

Answer: Despite the name, Death by Chocolate is actually much safer than the Bananas Foster. Bananas Foster could light every member of your family on fire. (St. Petersburg Times, Woman severely burned by bananas Foster at Palm Harbor restaurant)

2) Question: I want the thermostat set at 70 degrees but my husband insists on having it at 68. An argument resulted and I called him some mean names. Should I apologize? I feel terrible.

Answer: Probably, but don't feel too bad. Two sisters who were sharing a home in Plainfield, Ill., got into a full, knockdown catfight over a one degree difference in what the temperature should be. Now one of the sisters is being charged with misdemeanor battery and has also filed a civil lawsuit seeking to force a sale of the home. (Associated Press, Plainfield woman in hot water over thermostat spat) (via Legal Juice)

3) Question: I just grabbed a letter addressed to my husband from the mailbox that was smeared with peanut butter and which states on the envelope that it contains peanut butter. It is from his ex-wife and I am allergic to peanut butter. Can this be an "assault" on me?

Answer: Perhaps, if there was an intent to harm you with the peanut butter. (Battle Creek Enquirer, Woman tells police peanut butter was attempted assault)
