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 have an Illinois furbearer license to sell animal pelts. Does Illinois law allow me to grab some freebie pelts from roadkill?
Answer: As of Jan. 1, a new Illinois statute allows furbearers like yourself to salvage pelts or even food from roadkill. (The Associated Press, Illinois law lets motorists salvage fur, food from roadkill)
2) Question: The guy in the jail cell next to me down here in Orlando, Fla., says he is doing time for writing on a sidewalk with chalk. He is pulling my leg, right?
Answer: Maybe not! (Orlando Sentinel, Jail for using chalk on sidewalk? City needs to erase this error) (via Legal Juice)
3) Question: I was working at the Circle K when three robbers showed up, looked at me and yelled "shoot him, shoot him!" I somehow managed to throw one of the robbers to the ground and grab the gun, foiling the robbery! What do you think I might get for this act of heroism?
Answer: Probably fired. Circle K policy states that clerks are not to provoke, chase or engage a robber. (FOX10TV, Sales Clerk fights back, gets fired)
