Wednesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blawgosphere.

1) Question: How am I supposed to confine my brilliant, lengthy legal argument to the court's page limits? Maybe I should just ignore the "double-spaced" line requirement and pack in twice as much brilliance? What is the court going to do about it anyway, sanction me?

Answer: Next time, yes. (The Crime Scene: "Blackwater lawyers reprimanded ... for not double-spacing")

2) Question: Miley Cyrus once appeared in a photograph with friends where they "slanted their eyes." As such, $4 billion is now owed to all Asian and Pacific Islanders living in Los Angeles County, right?

Answer: Nope. (THR, Esq.: Miley Cyrus $4 Billion Lawsuit Dismissed)

3) Question: I'm at home minding my own business and listening to my emergency radio scanner. I just heard that the police are searching for a man wearing khaki pants and a San Francisco 49ers sweatshirt. Hmm, I have khaki pants and a San Francisco 49ers sweatshirt in my closet... Would there be any problem if I put on these clothes, get the police's attention, and then lead six police officers, a helicopter and a police dog on an hour-long chase through the streets and backyards of my town?

Answer: Definite problem, and watch out for a charge of "suspicion of obstructing and delaying a police officer." ( "Police search yields alleged prowler and fugitive imposter" via Lowering the Bar)
