Friday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

Legallyblonde 1) Question: I'm in London and I'd like to take in a law-related musical. Any suggestions?

Answer: Your top two law musicals in London this week are probably "Enron (the Play)" and "Legally Blonde: The Musical." Tough call, but maybe go with "Legally Blonde" here: The Telegraph's critic said "I tried, I really tried to hate this show, but resistance is futile." (AP: 'Blonde' bombshell: London critics praise musical)

2) Question: I'm on the jury in a murder trial. Today, the prosecution's star witness couldn't stop vomiting while under cross-examination. Now what?

Answer: You get to go home early. (CNews, "Witness vomits, jurors go home") (via Bad Lawyer)

3) Question: Some European prince (yes, a real royal) just slapped me twice upside the head because of the noise from a disco in the hotel I own. His wife, the princess, is now saying it was just a "symbolic reproach." Is this a real defense?

Answer: Keep an eye on the trial of Prince Ernst August of Hannover. It may shed light on this important issue. (AP: Princess Caroline: husband's slaps 'symbolic')
