Tuesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I was teasing my brother that he hasn't been on a date in years. He says he just went out with a woman. I told him paid escorts don't count! Who is right?

Are you in New Jersey? If so, then your brother is right. (New Jersey Law Journal: A Paid Escort Is a 'Date' Under Domestic Violence Act, N.J. Court Rules)

2) Question: So I just got my 13-year-old son's Verizon bill for last month. The boy downloaded 1.4 million kilobytes of data. Is that a lot? Do you think Verizon might cut me a break on the $22,000 monthly charge?

Answer: It's a whole lot. Verizon may be willing to work with you here. (The Consumerist: Teen Runs Up $22,000 Verizon Bill)

3) Question: I'm a police officer. This guy won't let us interview him. Just to clarify, is it OK if I put him in a squad car all day long with the heater cranked and the radio on full blast?

Answer: Not at all OK, and it may cost your city $200,000. (AP: Albuquerque man awarded $200K in civil rights case) (via Bad Lawyer)
