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 see that an Australian escort agency is offering the virginity of a 19-year-old girl for $15,400. Is this legal?

Answer: According to Brothel Busters, there is no law in Australia to stop an escort service from profiting from someone's virginity. (Daily TelegraphAussie Escort Agency Causes Outrage Offering Teen Girl's Virginity for Sale)

2) Question: A local casino has a glass display case that contains what is clearly real money and advertises a $250,000 giveaway. My buddies and I could not resist this and devised a plan that included shooting at the case with AK-47s and ultimately wrapping a chain around the case, connecting it to a sports utility vehicle and yanking it out of the casino. But despite the ad, it really only contained less than $3,000! We ditched the SUV and the measly $3,000 and ran, but now the cops are after us. Isn't this false advertising? Aren't we the real victims here?!

Answer: No and no. (10 News, 4 Armed Men Shoot Display Case, Take Cash At Barona Casino) (via Jonathan Turley)

3) Question: Why is there an odd sticker on my grandfather's gravesite? 

Answer: Did your grandfather lease his burial site? Some cemeteries have begun placing stickers on thousands of burial sites with lapsed leases as a warning to relatives that their ancestors face possible "eviction."
