Wednesday'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 pretty sure my apartment is one storm away from plummeting into the sea. The weatherman says there's a big one coming this week. Can I get out of my lease?


No way! (The Consumerist, Should You Be Let Out Of Your Lease If Your Apartment May Plummet Into The Sea?)

2) Question: I read your "Legal Blog Watch 5-Point Checklist for Bank Robbers" carefully last month. May I suggest a sixth important point I learned the hard way? Do not use a clear plastic bag as your disguise.

Answer: Excellent point. We will add it to the next edition of the Checklist. (Legal Juice, Tell Me You Didn't Put A Clear Plastic Bag Over Your Head And Rob That Joint)

3) Question: I saw your recent post noting that sometimes realtors "trash out" the wrong home when they complete the foreclosure process. Do they sometimes also turn off the wrong house's electricity and leave 75 pounds of salmon and halibut rotting for a week? We have a bit of a situation here.

Answer: It happens. Open a window. (The Business Insider, Bank Of America Seizes Wrong House, Shuts Off Electricity, And Lets 75 Pounds Of Fish Rot)
