Wednesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I live in Missouri. Does my state have any guidance for me with respect to identifying potential zombies? 

Answer: Yes, the Missouri Department of Conservation has issued an alert saying that the following are indications that you have a zombie in view:

  • It has a gray-green dull skin tone.
  • It is wearing inappropriate clothing for the season or terrain (no coat or shoes, for instance).
  • It has open wounds, other injuries and/or missing or damaged limbs but no sign of bleeding.
  • It does not respond to verbal stimulus or exhibit any interest in its immediate surroundings.
  • It is trying to eat you. (Missouri Department of Conservation, Invasive Species Alert: ZOMBIES!)

2) Question: Ugghh! I just got a ticket from one of those red light cameras in Los Angeles County. How many days do I have to pay it? 

Answer: The rest of your life. Or just throw it in the garbage if you want, as paying those fines is supposedly now "optional." (thenewspaper.com, California: Despite Payment Decline, LA County Rakes in Millions)

3) Question: I'm a famous rapper. I lost my laptop and I made an elaborate music video offering a $1 million reward if anyone could find and return the laptop to me. Some dude found it while walking his dog in Germany and now he wants the $1 million. Do I need to pay him? 

Answer: Yes, or get ready for a lawsuit. (Gawker, If You Offer a $1 Million Bounty for Your Missing Laptop, You Must Pay It)
