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 racked up a $28,000 tab at a strip club! Can I get out of paying it given that I was quite wasted at the time and not capable of conducting financial transactions?
Answer: No, you are stuck with that tab as there is no duty upon the strip club to protect you from your voluntary intoxication. (New York Daily News, WHAT A BOOB! Manhattan man who didn't check out the oversized tab at Larry Flynt's Hustler Club has to fork over $28,000)
2. Question: I was standing near the U.S.-Mexico border when a huge can filled with marijuana fell from the sky and landed right next to me. I'm serious! Am I being framed here?
Answer: No, drug smugglers have recently been caught loading cans of marijuana into a pneumatic-powered cannon and blasting the cans 500 yards over the border. (Daily Caller, Smugglers are literally shooting drugs out cannons into US)
3. Question: I loved the medical care I received in prison, but I've been recently released. Can I go commit shoplifting or something to get re-incarcerated and back on the prison health care plan?
Answer: Possibly, but some judges believe it is not humane to send a man back to jail so he can get health care treatment. (The Buffalo News, Judge refuses to jail ex-convict on quest for health coverage) (via ABA Journal)
