Thursday'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 supposed to come up with a new logo for my high school's sports teams. We are the Rams. I found a cool-looking ram on the Internet. Do you think anyone would care if I just removed the border around it and used it for our high school?


Answer: It looks like Chrysler would care. You are going to need to keep looking. (The Legal Satyricon, Chrysler vs. Lake Mary High)

2) Question: I got my girlfriend a dozen roses. She loved them, thought they smelled great and was just euphoric. I mean really, really euphoric. Can roses have this kind of effect on a woman?

Answer: Are you in Holland? Because Dutch customs officials just intercepted a shipment of cocaine hidden among 20,000 long-stem roses. Maybe there were some strays? (AP, Just for Valentine's Day: Cocaine Roses)

3) Question: There is some kind of plea bargaining session going on at the table next to me in the courthouse. I'm pretty sure the parties just agreed that the petit assault case against the defendant would be dismissed if the victim could slap him once in the face. Is this "slap-it-out"-type of agreement legit?

Answer: No -- it is not. (AP, via, Prosecutor Suspended for Allowing Slap)
