Wednesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: The referee in my women's boxing match stopped the fight after I suffered a broken right hand. I could have kept going! A fight between male fighters wouldn't have been stopped. That is sex discrimination, right?

Answer: Not according to the California State Athletic Commission. (The Associated Press, Boxer: Sex discrimination behind halted fight)

2) Question: I just got fired from my construction project becasue I was wearing an Oklahoma Sooner tee shirt. What the heck? Can I sue the customer for this? 

Answer: If you are hired to do construction at Oklahoma State football coach Mike Gundy's home, you better come wearing your orange, not Sooner red. And as for any lawsuit against Gundy, I think it is quite safe to say you better "GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT!" (Tulsa World, Choctaw man sues OSU coach Mike Gundy and his wife)

3) Question: I'm trying to reserve a table at a new restaurant in Washington, D.C., called Rogue 24. What is this document the restaurant is demanding that I fill out? 

Answer: If you want to make a reservation at Rogue 24 you'll need to execute their two-page contract first. And leave your cell phone and camera behind. (Eater, Here Is The Contract You Need To Sign To Eat At Rogue 24)
