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'm accused of murdering my wife. I say I'm innocent and the criminal was a man with one arm. Or maybe an elk?

Answer: Stick with the elk. (BBC News: Sweden woman's 'murder' committed by elk not husband)

2) Question: I'm a judge. Every time the local DA has a new case assigned to me he uses his one peremptory challenge to block the case from going to me. What can I do?

Answer: Not much. Try to enjoy the free time? (ABA Journal, Legal Ethics: Courthouse Abuzz Over DA’s Blanket Boycott of Longtime Judge)

3) Question: I'm a police officer. I just arrested a suspect for bank robbery and I think we even found the holdup note he handed to the teller on him. Where can I put the note while I frisk him?

Answer: Any location other than directly in front of the suspect's mouth should work. (Beacon Journal: Police accuse bank robbery suspect of gobbling up note)
