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 happened to be walking by the courthouse in London, Ontario this morning when a police officer approached me and said I was required to enter the courthouse and serve as on a jury, as the court was short one juror. Hey, I'm busy today! Do I have to do this?

Answer: Yes, Superior Court judges in Ontario have the power under the Criminal Code to have police and sheriff’s officers go out into the streets to find jurors as necessary. (The StarJurors rounded up off streets of London)

2) Question: I want to show my kids Martin Luther King's famous "I Have a Dream" speech but I cannot find it online anywhere. Where do I go to find it? 

Answer: Due to copyright issues, the only way to legally watch it now is to go to the King family's website and purchase it for $10. (The Atlantic Wire, The Great Martin Luther King Copyright Conundrum)

3) Question: I was at church near a fellow parishioner who was receiving the "spirit." The ushers at the church failed to prevent the person receiving the "spirit" from falling, and she did so, knocking several other worshippers into me. Now I am injured. Can I sue? 

Answer: The ushers failed to prevent that? That is outrageous, egregious, preposterous! (OnPoint News, Bystander Claims "Swoon and Fall" Injuries at Church)
