Monday'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 been named Teacher of the Year in my school district! Do I get anything (cash, extra vacation, certificate suitable for framing, etc.) along with this honor? 

Answer: Laid off. (KXTV, School system lays off "Teacher of the Year")

2) Question: I run a trucking company. One of our drivers just texted us to say that he is being held hostage by two armed men who took his keys and told him to stay with the truck until they returned to steal it and his truckload of berries! Should we call the FBI or something?

Answer: Maybe, but keep in mind that sometimes truckers who are too drunk to drive will pretend they have been taken hostage, too. (The OregonianTrucker's story about being held hostage doesn't pan out)

3) Question: I am thinking about robbing a bank. On the other hand, I am thinking about getting a job at the local grocery store. Which path will be more lucrative?

Answer: The average bank robbery nets a paltry $4,330 (and carries some serious risks of being caught and thrown in jail, on top of that), so as a matter of economics I'd go with the grocery store job. (Jonathan Turley, It's Official: Crime (At Least Bank Robbery) Doesn’t Pay)
