Tuesday's Three Burning Legal Questions
Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.
1) Question: I hear there are over 600 tax-foreclosed homes in my county. Will the county just let me purchase all of them at once?
Answer: No problem, as long as you have $4.8 million. (myFOXdetroit.com, Millionaire buys every tax-foreclosed home in Macomb County)
2) Question: I am the governor of a state. I am trying to offer an inmate clemency and a stay of execution but he says he doesn't want it! Can he turn my offer down?
Answer: Yes, he can. (ABA Journal, Judge Says Inmate Who Wants To Be Executed Can Override Governor’s Death Penalty Veto)
3) Question: I just joined the city council in Seattle. My new colleagues tell me that my first project is to head a Sandbox Task Force to study the differences between children's wooden sandboxes and wooden planter boxes. Am I being hazed or something?
Answer: No, this is a real issue in Seattle, where sandboxes that are too close to the street are prohibited and can result in a $500-per-day penalty, but wooden planter boxes that look just the same are allowed. (The Seattle Times, City warns North Seattle family of $500-a-day fine over sandbox near street)
