Thursday'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 the president of a country. I can't say which country I am president of but let's just say it is a superpower located in North America. I am about to travel to Darwin, Australia. Can I obtain insurance for my family in case I am attacked by a crocodile during my visit?

Answer: Yes, but don't bother. Upon your arrival, the local authorities will likely present you with the gift of an insurance policy that will pay your family $50,000 if you get attacked by a crocodile in Darwin. You're covered! (ABC NewsNT insures Obama against croc attack)

2) Question: I'm representing myself as the defendant in a robbery prosecution. Are there any questions I should not ask the robbery victim when he is on the witness stand?

Answer: Do not ask the question, "What did the robber's voice sound like?" unless you are prepared for the response of "It sounded exactly like you." (The Morning CallHow did robber sound? 'He sounded like you')

3) Question: Why is there a very sad and dirty-looking man stuck in my chimney?

Answer: Sometimes would-be burglars try to break into people's houses through the chimney and get stuck for 10 hours. (WSBTC, Teen rescued from chimney, arrested)
