Friday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I am an eleventh-grade high school student. Let's face it, I stink at math. How much would I need to pay the teacher to get a good grade? 

Answer: It looks like $40 will get it done. Just staple or paper clip two $20 bills to your test when you turn it in. (WINK News, Report: Charlotte teacher sold grades to pay debts)

2) Question: Can I still be charged with "hit-and-run" if I get into an accident and flee the scene on foot, but leave my 2-month-old and 2 year-old daughters behind in the car?

Answer: Yes. (The Detroit News, Dad crashes car in Detroit and flees, leaving young daughters behind)

3) Question: I am trying to run for president, but one of my harshest critics has created a website that (falsely!!) defines my last name as a noun meaning, "The frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex." Even worse, through some kind of Google black magic, he has managed to make this website and definition be the first result that comes up when you search my name on Google!! Can I force Google to change this?

Answer: No. Google doesn't give one single hoot about your misdefined name. (CNN, Santorum asks Google to clean up search results for his name)
