Friday's Three Burning Legal Questions: 'Bitch' Edition
Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.
1) Question: I'm about to be sentenced on robbery charges, and I'm really quite perturbed. I'm thinking about calling the judge a "cracker bitch" in open court. How much extra time will I have to serve if I say it?
Answer: It looks like you may get six months extra time in prison for contempt of court. (State v. Taylor) (via Legal Juice)
2) Question: I'm pretty sure this talking baby doll I got my daughter at Toys "R" Us just called my daughter a "crazy bitch." Won't anyone think of the children and get this abusive doll off of the shelves?
Answer: Rest easy, an Arkansas lawyer is already on the case. (ABA Journal, Lawyer Says Doll Says the B-Word, Offers Video Proof)
3) Question: I poked fun at a mistake the barista in the coffee shop made. When I got back to my office with my caramel frappuccino, I noticed that the barista wrote "Bitch" on the part of my cup where she was supposed to write my name. What can I get for my emotional distress?
Answer: Some free coffee vouchers is about all you can expect here. (Consumerist, Starbucks Customer: Excuse Me, But My Name Is Not "Bit*h")
