Monday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I've been summoned for jury duty in Chicago next Monday, but I'm really busy preparing for my first State of the Union speech to Congress, not to mention a meet-and-greet with the Los Angeles Lakers at the White House. Can I get out of jury duty somehow?

Answer: No problem. (Chicago Breaking News, Obama to skip jury duty in Bridgeview)

2) Question: All I said was, "mmmm-mmmm-mmmm." Seriously, that's all. Can that get me a conviction for "indecent language" and a court martial?

Answer: Mmmm hmmm. Yep. (Suits & Sentences, Marine court martialed for saying "mmmm-mmmm-mmmm")

3) Question: Four of my friends and I each painted a letter on our shirts for the senior class picture, to spell out "C-L-A-S-S." Well, "C" and 'L" bailed on us, and now the three of us remaining have been suspended from school, fined $135 and stripped of our offices in school after we stood together in the class picture. Is this fair? Yours truly, "One of the S's."

Answer: Next time make sure one of the remaining S stays on the far left when this happens. Nobody gets suspended for "S-A-S." (, Senior class photo spells trouble) (via Legal Juice)
