Wednesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: My kind-hearted 11-year-old daughter saved a baby woodpecker from an attack by our family cat. Now, she is going to nurse it back to health so we can release it back into the wild. Do you think the wildlife authorities might want to give her an award or some kind of recognition for this?

Answer: Actually, they may want to give you a $535 fine and possible jail time for transporting a protected migratory bird. (Consumerist, Mom Fined $535 After Daughter Saves Woodpecker)

2) Question: The hotel that I'm staying in delivered a newspaper to my room that I did not request and charged me 75 cents. Can I file a federal class action against the hotel for this "offensive waste of precious resources and energy" that is causing "deforestation?"

Answer: Yep. (San Francisco Chronicle, Hilton guest makes federal case of 75-cent paper)

3) Question: Why does the lady at the donut shop's drive-through window always ask me to call her if I want to "have a good time?" 

Answer: Sometimes donut shop drive-through employees run prostitution businesses on the side where they provide sexual services to customers during their work breaks. (Daily Record, 'Extra sugar' investigation leads to prostitution arrest for Rockaway Dunkin Donuts worker)
