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 policeman working at the precinct headquarters. A man just walked in, identified himself and asked if there were any active arrest warrants for him. In fact, there are two active arrest warrants for him. Umm, I should arrest him now, right?

Answer: Correct. (The Beacon-NewsAuroran jailed after asking cops about warrants for his arrest) (via Legal Juice)

2) Question: A city-owned vacant lot in my town is covered in garbage and broken glass, garbage, discarded Jersey wall barriers, and so on. Would it be a problem for me to invest about $20,000 of my own money to clean it up and have it cleared and landscaped? 

Answer: Oh, yes. That is called trespassing, and the city will make you restore the lot to its original dilapidated condition. (Philly.com, Was spruce-up of Point Breeze lot a trespass?)

3) Question: I am a plaintiffs lawyer, and the defendant in a civil case I am working on refused to appear for the deposition we scheduled for him. May I have $113,000 in attorney fees for this transgression?

Answer: Yes. (Deadspin, Judge Orders Floyd Mayweather To Pay More Than $113,000 In Legal Fees To Manny Pacquiao)
