Tuesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: So I'm in the maternity ward nursing my newborn baby when the nurse pops in and says sorry, they'd given me the wrong newborn baby to nurse! Everything is straight now but, hey, I didn't sign up to nurse somebody else's baby. Do I have a case here?

Keep an eye on the Spiegel case in Chicago. Damages could be pretty tough, though. (Blogher, Damaged by Accidentally Breastfeeding Someone Else's Baby? Seriously??)

2) Question: The mint that I manage for my country just cranked out thousands of coins that misspell the name of our country. Is this going to be a problem?

Answer: It could very well be -- for you. When this happened in Chile (which is reportedly not supposed to be spelled "C-H-I-I-E"), the manager of the mint was dismissed. On the bright side, if you can grab a few of the misspelled coins on your way out, they may turn out to be collectors' items.(Clusterstock, Now This Is the Worst Currency Error Ever)

Kfc 3) Question: I see a huge bronze bust of Colonel Sanders in this pawn shop. They want $200 for it. Should I go for it?

Answer: Are you a KFC fan? If so, it may be worth the investment because the KFC in Berea, Ky., has offered $500 in free chicken to the person who returns the Colonel's stolen bust to the restaurant. (UPI, Col. Sanders Statue Stolen From KFC)
