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 bought some frozen trout at the grocery store, defrosted them and then pretended I caught them in the local lake to impress my kids. But then some meddling neighbor who saw me with the trout reported me to police for poaching from the lake, and I face a trial. Now what??

Answer: Your defense seems far-fetched, so hopefully you can find your receipt for the trout from the grocery store! (UPI, Accused poacher says he bought the trout)

2) Question: I am running for Congress but nobody is paying any attention to my campaign. Can I change my legal name to "VoteForEddie.com" and have that be the name that appears on the ballot? 

Answer: No problem. (Legal Juice, Congressional Candidate Changes Name To Website)

3) Question: My home cleaning business is slow. Can I start letting myself into random strangers' houses, cleaning their bathrooms, etc., and leaving them a bill? 

Answer: That is called trespassing. And I wouldn't count on anyone paying those bills, either. (WKYC/NBC, 'Cleaning Fairy' gets busted)
