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'm a police officer. I just pulled a woman over for driving on the San Diego Freeway with a cellphone in one hand (itself a citable offense), a baby in her lap and two unsecured children in the backseat. Where do I even begin with the charges here?

Answer: You could go with arresting her on suspicion of child endangerment and placing the three children in protective custody. (CBS, Woman Accused Of Texting While Driving With Baby On Her Lap) (via Consumerist)

2) Question: We just took our senior class photo and a group of us wore T-shirts that spelled out "CLASS of 2012." My shirt had the "A" on it. After the formal photo we took another casual photo but while I was still standing next to the other two kids with "S" shirts for that photo, the kids with the "C" and "L" shirts wandered away. Now the school is saying that the two "S' shirt kids and I will be suspended and fined $135 each. What gives??

Answer: When you and your friends spell out "A-S-S" in your school photo, you may face some consequences. (KHOU, Senior class photo spells trouble) (via Legal Juice)

3) Question: My kid wants a Happy Meal with the cool toy. Isn't this this a violation of consumer protection laws, exploiting my son's vulnerability by using toys to lure him to eat nutritionally unbalanced meals that can lead to obesity?

Answer: No. Get a life. (The Associated Press, Calif. kids can have Happy Meals, judge rules)
