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 am a Pennsylvania real estate agent. I'm trying to sell a house but people keep getting freaked out when I tell them about the murder-suicide that occurred in the house. Can I just keep this little tidbit of information to myself going forward?
Answer: Yes, Pennsylvania's superior court recently ruled that a murder-suicide occurring in a home is not a material defect requisite of disclosure in that home's sale. (Constitutional Daily, Dial C for Caveat Emptor; The Legal Intelligencer, No Duty to Disclose Murder-Suicide at House For Sale)
2. Question: I'm a sandwich artist at Subway. If I stand up for sandwich integrity and try to start a fistfight with someone for asking me to put ketchup on a Philly cheesesteak, can I be fired?
Answer: Yes. (Philly.com, Subway sandwich artist refuses to put ketchup on cheesesteak, tries to start fight, gets fired)
3. Question: I am a member of the U.S. Congress and, frankly, my colleagues and I are incapable of solving the looming debt ceiling problem. Can we just end this whole debacle by minting a coin made out of platinum, giving it a $1 trillion face value, and depositing it in the U.S. Treasury?
Answer: Of course. (The Huffington Post, Can We Avert The Coming Debt Ceiling Crisis With A Magic Coin?)
