Monday's Three Burning Legal Questions

1) Question: For years I was the general manager of a major league baseball team. My city even named a street after me. Now that I've been fired from the team, the state department of transportation wants to rename my street! Can they do that?

Answer: The state controls the roadways, so it looks like you're out of luck. (Chicago Sun-TimesWith Hendry out, Park Ridge wants 'Jim Hendry Way' gone too)

2) Question: I'm a doctor performing a circumcision on an adult patient. Can I instead perform an amputation of my unconscious patient's penis if I believe it is necessary?

Answer: At least one doctor has prevailed in a lawsuit on this very issue. (Insurance Journal, Kentucky Jury Sides with Doctor In Penis Amputation Malpractice Claim)

3) Question: I want to send a virtual "smile" to this guy I like on the "Christian Mingle" dating website. Why can't I get my smile to go through to him?

Answer: Are you a guy, too? Because you cannot send a "smile" to users of the same gender on Christian Mingle. (FAILBlog, Dating: Thou Shalt Not Smile)
